Pathway Overview

Gaia University has adopted the ethics of permaculture design as the foundation for all degree programs (care of the Earth, care of the people, and setting of limits to population and consumption). Our Integrative Ecosocial Design pathway focuses on design-based work that balances all of the permaculture ethics. This pathway is available to all of our degree associates and is the only option available to our Bachelor's associates. 

The Open Topic pathway is available only to our Master's and Post-Master's Graduate Diploma associates. This pathway allows more flexibility in an associate's pathway design. As long as the topic aligns with the Gaia University ethics, there is no limit to the concentration you can choose.
