College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical and Spiritual Studies
| Style over substance|
The College of Inner Awareness, Metaphysical and Spiritual Studies is an unaccredited college in Clearwater, Florida that specializes in teaching metaphysical philosophy and metaphysical ministries. They teach homeopathy and various other "natural" healing techniques as well as "New Thought" subjects. Basically, it's chock full of crank magnetism within the large and amorphous field of New Age, including spiritualism, shamanism (probably of the plastic variety), neopaganism, all kinds of paranormal woo, and out-and-out magic.

Despite being unaccredited the College of Metaphysical Studies is not what someone could call a diploma mill. For their graduate programs a 50,000 word thesis is required for doctoral level work and doctoral theses are looked over by a committee of three people (much like an actual university), and there is an actual teaching staff as well. Plus earning a degree from CMS takes the same time as an actual college degree from an accredited college or university. However, life experience credits are accepted and the actual location of the school is ambiguous.
