Gaia University Master’s degree programs are designed for those making the transition from functioning at an operational level to becoming strategic. They are also suited to those moving out of a corporate career and into a career in ecosocial regeneration. Prior hands-on life and field experience is a requirement for admission to a Master’s program.
At the Master’s level, transition and leadership are important threads. You will be exploring your capacities for making personal and pathway transitions while taking on leadership roles and looking for opportunities to challenge yourself using Gaia University’s support structures to process any resistances and fears that may arise.
You have a choice of three pathways – Integrative Ecosocial Design (IESD), Regenerative Enterprise Design and Development (REDD) and Open Topic. The Open Topic pathway allows you to propose a name for your degree based on the work you have done and the skills you have developed during your degree time.
All three pathways assist you in developing transferable and flexible skills much in demand by project leaders, non-profits, and other employers in the world change field. You will explore creating your own business, not for profit, benefit corp, B-Corp or other structure using the entrepreneurial skills you are developing. You will explore ways to finance your livelihood using fund-raising and investment tools from the “New Economy”. You will enhance your project design, time and management skills, develop your digital documentation skills, expand your leadership abilities, develop additional research capacities, hone your professional and organizational skills, make local and global connections and much more.
The learning design follows the generic pattern of all Diploma and Degree pathways at Gaia University, using a Transformative Action Learning methodology.
