Explore Maitripa College Spring 2017
Monday, January 30, 2017 – February 3, 2017

We find that when prospective Continuing Education (CE) students visit campus, meet with our staff, and sit in on classes, many questions are answered, including:

  • Am I ready for the rigor of Buddhist scholarship, meditation, and service at a graduate level?
  • Do I connect to the faculty, other students, and community?
  • Can the topics covered in these courses take me further in thought and practice?
  • Are there resources and staff available to support me? 
  • Can I just take one course that interests me?

To answer your questions, come and explore! 

To register, simply email our Director of Student Services with your request, and we will be in touch to confirm your registration.
