Learning Pathways

Learning Pathways

At Ubiquity each student is free to design their own learning pathway and degree program. Think of what you want to become or what you want to learn and we will help you design a learning pathway that suits you best. At the same time, we also offer BA Completion, MA , MBA, PhD and DMin degrees with specific concentrations that we believe are important. You can pre-pay for your Programs at Ubiquity or pay per course as you go.

Ubiquity offers a variety of ways to access individual courses. If you already know what course you’re interested in and how you’d like to take it, you may get started at this link.

Trimester Courses are 48-hour courses designed to last 3 months. They unlock the full depth of the Ubiquity experience. These for-credit courses grant you access to course facilitators, impact and personal mastery coaches, as well as skill badges that recognize your new competencies. The best part? You can stack your badges over time to unlock higher credentials such as Certificates, and even degrees!

Micro Courses are 12-hour courses designed to be taken over one month. They help you achieve particular competencies outside of the standard trimester term and are equivalent to 1/3rd of a normal trimester class. They are more flexible than trimester courses, while still resulting in badges and professional credentials. They can be taken on your own at any time at your own pace, or they can be taken with group peers. Group courses begin on the second Monday of each month.  

Nano Courses are bite-sized, 3-hr courses that provide you with useful information on a specific subject. You can take them at any time. 

Lite Courses are “lite” versions of our Trimester and Micro offerings. These non-credit courses can be completed at your own pace while still unlocking lower-level points and skill badges. Are you interested in gaining skills and credentials but don’t need academic credit or the full hands-on experience? If so, Lite courses are for you. And don’t worry! If you change your mind later, you can complete the full course assignments to gain academic credit toward a higher credential.

Immersive Trimester Courses are trimester courses taken for non-credit that still grant you access to Ubiquity’s full range of learning resources. You should take this version if you are interested in mastering a certain competency and skill badge outside of our certificate and degree offerings. As you will have completed the full curriculum, these courses may be easily converted into academic credit later by simply paying the difference between the Immersive and degree-level course fee ($50).

Ubiquity awards certificates when you take groups of courses that showcase your expertise in a given area. You can use these certificates to highlight your skills with employers and other stakeholders. They equip you in particular for our Ubiquity Sustainability Challenge.
