Degree Programs

Official Recognition

The Tarot School regards the learning of Tarot as an education with many programs, each reflecting the student and the world from a different perspective. In recognition of the value of focused and extended study, The Tarot School grants a degree in each of the following programs:

    The Tarot School Correspondence Course
    Tarot Salon

Tarot School degrees are an official recognition of extensive studies satisfactorily completed, and are also preparations and initiations for further study.

Progress Certificates

Once you've earned your Correspondence Course degree, you'll receive a beautiful parchment certificate from The Tarot School. But before then, you'll receive Degree Candidate Level Certificates acknowledging your progress at the quarter, half-way and three-quarter marks. We know that your studies will start paying off long before a program is complete, and we recognize your achievements along the way. Some students have found these certificates useful for obtaining employment in the field even before they receive their degree!

Degrees are Cumulative

Completion of the Tarot Salon program of study earns a First Degree. Completion of the Correspondence Course program earns a Third Degree. If another degree is earned in another program, it is added to the first one, with both programs named on the certificate. This process is thus cumulative, degree adding to degree.

Additional degree levels are also attainable through extended courses of study in the same program.

What do people do with a Tarot School degree?

What gives a Tarot School degree its value is that the school is known and recognized in the international tarot community for its excellence and integrity. If a Tarot School degree student applies for a job as a reader with a media based reading business or a local metaphysical shop, or as a teacher at a local college, community college or adult education program, the degree adds a lot of power to that person's resume.

In addition, and perhaps primarily, the degree is a confirmation of a student's own skill and knowledge — and knowledge is certainly its own reward. We know that if you spend time studying tarot with us, you will change. Some of those changes are external, such as the increased skill you'll attain with the cards. Some of those changes are internal. You'll grow in your understanding of yourself, your world and the people around you. Tarot School degrees are cumulative and each recognizes and celebrates a degree of change.

Over time, the academic study of tarot will play an increasingly important role in the professionalizing of the field. A Tarot School degree will certainly play a part in that development over the long term.

So you see, there are a number of ways that a Tarot School degree might be important to you. Each student is different and each has a personal experience of the process. But no matter what you ultimately choose to do with your degree, we'll be there with you every step of the way.
