Contemplative Education - Master of Arts
The low-residency Contemplative Education Master's Degree at Naropa University is designed for classroom teachers at all levels, pre-K through college, as well as people interested in transforming teaching and learning. Combining the study of holistic Western educational theory and philosophy with Eastern meditation practices, the low-residency MA in Contemplative Education will give students a strong foundation in contemplative teaching, curriculum development, and personal awareness.
Students who graduate with a degree in Contemplative Education are uniquely prepared to create compassionate and successful learning communities and effect meaningful educational reform, in the classroom and beyond. Students will learn to practice Maitri, Space Awareness, complete and present a Master's research project, and take classes in the afternoon or evening to accommodate their work schedule. Education Beyond the Classroom is an option targeted primarily to non-teachers, students who are interested research, policy, and other areas. The Contemplative Education program is a low-residency, two-year, 38-credit degree program. Students take classes as part of a cohort community.
