Open Programs at Passion University

Passion University nurtures passionate learning through personalized open programs and the attention of dedicated, supportive staff. Knowledge and skills are integrated from a wide variety of disciplines and modalities. The programs’ format, content and curriculum reflect the University’s innovative approach to higher education.

Quality of Life

We provide students with the tools and support needed for growth and fulfilled living. Develop qualities, gain broad perspective about your life, explore diverse pathways towards your goals, and acquire the skills needed to turn your dreams into reality.

Diverse Learning Formats

While most coursework is done online, there are experiential components to Passion’s courses, and some of these require in-person instruction. Depending on the individual course, this may be accomplished at a weekend workshop, or occasionally in the form of a short residential training.

The advantage of a hybrid course such as this, is that intellectual learning is accomplished with the convenience and efficiency of internet access, while in-person instruction offers personal support and attention which would not be possible through the internet alone.

Students may attend in-person courses in their area or convenient geographical locations. Outdoor adventures and Vision Quests vary in location. The type of course and locations are provided in the individual course listings on the home page under Programs.

International Students

Passion University welcomes international students, and holds a unique benefit for those who cannot or do not wish to relocate from their home country. Passion is not equipped to obtain visas for international students, however the limited amount of time spent for in-person training makes the student’s time in the United States the equivalent of a vacation rather than a relocation.  A passport will in most cases be sufficient documentation for travel to occasional brief workshops or residential training.

Experiential training may also be self-guided. In some cases, approved residential training may be possible within or near a student’s home country.

Integrating experiential workshops, in-person classes and retreats.

Learn What You Want

Most students go through their college years treating it all as an application of delayed gratification. There is a foregone conclusion pervading the academic world that school is by nature draining and difficult, that students must put their present work, family, friendships, and other interests aside to earn a degree. It is an unattractive and unhealthy prospect. People do this every day because they’re told this is the inevitable price of success, which will someday lead to future joy.

Move Life Forward

Passion University has a different understanding. Today you have the opportunity to have your future in an education that:

  • Welcomes who you really are and how you want to live!
  • Energizes you rather than drains you.
  • You treasure in the moment instead of feeling eager to put it in the past.
  • Take the courses you want rather than what’s dictated for you.
  • Choose teachers that are available anywhere rather than at a single location.
  • Promotes communication rather than silence.
  • Encourages communication and healthy relationships, not isolation.
  • You cherish and take real satisfaction in achievements.
  • Lets you keep your current residence and lifestyle in addition to studying at your own pace and energy level.

“If the colleges were better, if they really had it, you would need to get the police at the gates to keep order in the inrushing multitude… The college, which should be a place of delightful labor, is made odious and unhealthy, and the young men are tempted to frivolous amusements to rally their jaded spirits… Scholarship is to be created not by compulsion, but by awakening a pure interest in knowledge.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
