AT MAITRIPA COLLEGE
The distance learning program at Maitripa College is designed to offer students the opportunity to take advantage of the unique course offerings and educational methods of the College from anywhere in the world.
and the Maitripa distance learning team are committed to developing the medium of cyberspace into an educational tool to facilitate the understanding of Buddhist thought around the world.
A Maitripa College education is designed to offer three pillars for a complete education: training in scholarship, meditation, and service. Online, we currently offer a selection of core courses in Buddhist philosophical and meditation training with the encouragement that all students pursue service in their communities.
Maitripa College currently does not offer online degrees, nor does distance learning at Maitripa accrue credit toward a future degree. Rather, Maitripa College Online aims to provide opportunities for continuing education to students around the world seeking an authentic and practical presentation of Buddhist Studies toward personal and societal transformation. Please refer to our Academic Program pages for descriptions and learning outcomes.
Distance learning courses at MC include video lectures, interactive discussion groups, reading, writing, and opportunities for Q&A. See the Course Requirements page for information on academic requirements expected of online students.
