Doctor of Divinity — D.D.
The AIHT Divinity curriculum offers thought-provoking,
stimulating distance-learning course work leading to a Doctor of
Divinity (D.D.) degree. Our real-world approach to the deep
questions of theology and religion addresses the practicalities of

The AIHT teaching approach is non-secular, seeking not to limit the
student's focus on the possibility of only one Higher Being, but to
help each individual become more aware of, open to, and more able to
develop his or her own personal relationship to their own source of
As with all AIHT disciplines, this degree program helps prepare each

Holistic Childcare — B.S.
AIHT's Holistic Childcare program is for those who work with, live
with, and wish to help children grow into their strongest, most
confident, aware, serene and content selves.
Our Holistic Childcare curriculum starts at the beginning, with
memorable and common-sensical approaches to holistic infant and
toddler care, continuing through childhood and adolescence.
Blending physical teachings such as proper nutrition and yogic
breathing helps to foster crisp mental clarity that is lovingly
tempered with a deepening awareness of Divine guidance. This
bachelor's level program seeks to address the whole child: mind,
body and spirit.
Each year, the AIHT Holistic Childcare program helps hundreds of
parents, teachers, counselors, and day care workers to enrich the
growth experiences of children in their care.
Our unique Holistic Childcare program empowers new parents as well
as seasoned childcare workers and teachers, rounding out your
knowledge while warming the depths of your soul. AIHT offers a
whole-child education that you simply can't get anywhere else.
Let's teach all children to love, create, meditate, be thoughtful,
be responsible, eat properly, value their own health and well-being,
and view others with hopeful, mindful, holistic awareness. Holistic
Childcare studies are a tangible way to improve the world, and help
create a brighter future for us all.

Holistic Ministries — B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
AIHT's Holistic Ministries explores the science of logic, ethics,
moral self-discipline, motivating principles, and the homeostatic
balance of mind, body and spirit - including rational inquiry into
questions that are virtually unanswerable to scientific observation,
analysis or experiment. Our Holistic Ministries program includes
bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs.
At AIHT three programs in Holistic Ministries challenge
distance-learning students to seek order within, the natural order
of our universe. Offering a Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Master of
Science (M.S.), and/or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Our
philosophy of body/mind/spirit empowers students to value and trust
their own experiences and perceptions as an accurate foundation for
their own reality.
The successful Holistic Ministries graduate's goal is to engage,
enliven and help expand each client's highest human potential by
actively, purposefully nurturing soul work in everyday life.

Metaphysics — B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
Metaphysics is the science which investigates first causes of all
existence and knowledge. It seeks to explain the nature of being,
the origin and structure of the world, in relationship between the
ethereal and the physical. Metaphysics holds that the soul or spirit
and the physical body are one yet separate; here the applied
psychology of religion comes to bear.
AIHT's three distance-learning programs in Metaphysics are each
designed to help students answer the cosmic scientific question,
"What's it all about?" Offerings include a Bachelor of Science
(B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), and/or Doctor of Philosophy
(Ph.D.) degree. Metaphysical training seeks to explain, from the
beginning, the nature of being; thus, its practicioners can often
serve the dual role of counselor / healer. Request More Information
Parapsychic Science — B.S., M.S.,
Parapsychic science addresses the scientific investigation,
validation and emotional aftermath of paranormal phenomena from
near-death experiences to telepathic experiences, intuition, and
With three distance-learning programs in Parapsychic Science, AIHT
helps students cultivate a spiritual appreciation of the ethereal as
well as that which is considered "real." Offerings include a
Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), and/or Doctor
of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree.
Unlike the psychologist who deals mainly with the corporeal mind,
the parapsychic studies the ethereal mind as well. Parapsychics meld
knowledge of contemporary science, philosophy and religion into a
single humanistic, universal understanding of psychical phenomena.
Theirs is the study of how matter, energy and consciousness
interact. Request More Information
Healtheology — B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
We know that much of health is a matter of choices. Healtheology is
a theological science of health, espousing that the two share
essential common ground; that successfully blending health with
theology can indeed yield a sum that is far greater than its parts.
For instance, healtheology maintains not only that you are what you
eat, but also that what we eat is based on how we think. In a word,
we become what we think.
Our three Healtheology programs provide awareness-raising,
provocative distance-learning course work leading to a Bachelor of
Science (B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), and/or Doctor of
Healtheology (Ph.D.) degree. Our harmonious approach to theology and
the universe includes a popular introductory course in aromatherapy,
as well as advanced courses in somatics (movement), shamanic
journeys, angels and transpersonal counseling.
Those seeking relief from a specific condition can learn to
recognize long-term good health as a rightful expectation, not the
short-term conditions of ill health that they may temporarily
experience. Theology, the study of God and divine law, is a science
that affects human health to the extent to which we human beings are
functioning in harmony with the universe - based on our individual
level of awareness and our own thought processes. Request More
Naturology — B.S., M.S., D.N., Ph.D.
Naturology is an exclusive course of study that was created by AIHT.
Naturology comes from the root word, nature, meaning "that which is
lifelike, not artificial" and the suffix, ology, meaning "a branch
of learning or science."
AIHT offers four distance-learning programs in Naturology, each
designed to invoke the simple wisdom and bounty of nature in
attending to our human needs. Offerings include a Bachelor of
Science (B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), Doctor of Naturology (D.N.)
and/or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The naturologenic
orientation is that, just as humans were created with both dietary
and environmental needs, our planet, likewise, was created for the
natural provision of humanity's nutritional and health needs. These
natural gifts contribute to both our psycho/spiritual health and our
Naturology holds that nature is our total source for dietary,
spiritual, and intellectual health. Naturologists do not use
anything synthetic; instead they choose only nature's own solutions.
Naturologists teach and empower clients through lectures, testing,
evaluation, and demonstrations, using all-natural modes and
methodologies. Request More Information
American Institute of Holistic Theology
As old as humanity itself is the divine gift of human potential: to
connect, tap into and realize the perfect harmony within mind, body
and spirit. This holistic philosophy is "the space between the
notes," in that it bridges gaps between tangible facts, ethical
analysis, and intuitive wisdom of the laws of life. It also forms a
continuum between here and now and the hereafter.
Theology, the study of God's divine law, is a science that affects
the health of humanity. Conscious awareness puts the human spirit in
harmony with the flow of universal energy. This consciousness grows
from the ability to experience and learn, to express and convey
divinity in our dealings with others.
Welcome to the American Institute of Holistic Theology. Established
in 1991, our purpose is to prepare the student for a meaningful
holistic ministerial counseling or holistic educational counseling
career. In bridging the non-secular sciences of health and wellness,
AIHT teaches you how to help others to become healthier and more
