More flexible and more affordable than ever..
New for 2014: We have created Gaia U Latina which will offer Gaia U programs in Spanish. See www.gaiaulatina.org for all the information!. We are also partnering with the global Transition Network to offer a Diploma in Transition Leadership. More on this soon.
Gaia U continues to offer an International Diploma in Permaculture Design as well as a Diploma in Action for Resilience. Successful diplomats can apply to enter the last year of the Bachelor’s or Masters program.
We will also continue to offer access to accredited Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees as well as post graduate diplomas and now the Orientation can be taken online avoiding added expense for travel and room and board.
These online programs enable people anywhere in the world to access Gaia U’s self-directed, project-based transformative action learning programs.
We have various payment plans for our low fees and you can pay quarterly or monthly as well as take Pause months as needed.
Students do their project work anywhere in the world they choose and are supported by a team of Gaia U. advisors and mentors in documenting their learning.
Incorporated in 2004 and operational since 2006, as of early 2014 Gaia University has graduated 78 Master’s and Bachelors candidates in the US and Germany.
Based on a chaordic organizational design, Gaia U is a global action-learning network and community with allied associations in ecovillages, permaculture centers, holistic health centers and institutes world-wide.
Focused on the development of world-changers who are committed to Earth care, people care, and equitable distribution of resources, Gaia University is modeled on a 12-year pilot project in the UK.
We offer potential specializations in any area of sustainability, regeneration, and world change, e.g., Permaculture, Ecovillage Design, Transition Towns, Life Transitions, Natural Building, Relocalization, Peace Studies, Ecocities, Appropriate Technology, Traditional Wisdom, Eco- Health, Sustainable Economics, Midwifery, Bioregionalism, Natural Building, Social Communication, Art for Social Change, Community Leadership, Designing for Disaster, Energy Descent, Beyond Consensus, Spiral Dynamics, Peak Oil, and Financial Permaculture, as well as self-designed programs based on student interests and the strategic needs of our partner networks.
