Ubiquity’s digital-first BA degree program is designed to equip you to operate in a hyper-complex world - where the speed of change is increasing exponentially, the interconnectedness of issues is woven ever more tightly, and events anywhere can have dramatic effects everywhere. In eras of change such as ours, business as usual is no longer an option. Our commitment is to equip you to be able to thrive in this reality while contributing to a world that works for everyone.

In order to achieve that, Ubiquity helps you to develop six core competencies. These competencies are divided into three areas: Knowledge Content (the things you are going to study), Personal Qualities (the dimensions in yourself you are going to develop), and Action in the World (how you engage the world). All of your study and program-related activity at Ubiquity will contribute to the development of these core competencies.

BA Courses

A Ubiquity BA Capstone Completion program is composed of 7 study courses (30%), 2 Impact courses and an Impact Project (30%) and 1 Self-Mastery course and your Self-Mastery project (30%). The remaining 10% is for collaboration, as demonstrated in the online interaction, creative assignments and Impact Project.

The study courses are made up of three main groups:

Core Courses – this is a set of five courses that you take before you move on to explore more.

Elective Courses – these are up to two other courses that you choose from any of the other General Education courses on offer through Ubiquity.

Core Courses (5 required courses - see course descriptions below)

  • The Foundations of Critical Thinking with Dr. Linda Elder
  • Global Forces and Shaping the Future with Dr Paul Ray
  • Great Books of World Wisdom Traditions with Dr Jim Garrison
  • The Living Universe with Dr Duane Elgin
  • Transformational Leadership, Strategy and Governance with Peter Merry

Other Courses

Once you have completed your core courses, you must choose 2 more General Education, 2 Impact courses and 1 Self-Mastery. The latest selection of courses is available at www.ubiquity.courses.

Self-Mastery

The self-mastery component cuts across all of your study and time at Ubiquity. You are required to take at least 1 self-mastery related course to support the development of your practice over the course of your degree. It may be that you already have a certain practice for self-mastery that you just want to continue developing, which is fine. You will then report on that practice in the reports discussed below. The self-mastery modules on the Ubiquity platform are opportunities for you to explore different practices and find approaches that work for you.

Each week you are expected to make a short post in that describes the self-mastery work you have done the last week. Your Self-Mastery Mentor will briefly review these posts. Each trimester you also submit a Self-Mastery report that documents (in writing, video or audio) how your self-mastery practice has developed over the trimester, your experience of its impact, and how it relates to your studies and Impact change project. This self-mastery report will be assessed by your Mentor and you will receive personalised feedback on it.

Your Mentor will be available to you throughout your time at Ubiquity, to support you when needed and help you to make your study choices.

Impact Project

The Impact! program supports you to go from the phase of coming up with a great idea for creating positive change (in the form of a social enterprise or change project) right through to implementation, income and impact. About half-way through you can apply for micro-financing to test out your ideas.

You are required to take at least 2 Impact-related courses to support you in the development of your project. At a number of moments during the program, you are asked to submit pieces of work for feedback that help you to develop your project. As in a course, you join a Pod with a small number of other students, which is supervised by your personal Impact Coach.

For each module of the program there is a presentation that takes you through the various steps, introduces different resources and give you assignments, which are all about applying your learning to your project. A pdf document enables you to work clearly and smoothly through each module.

We highly recommend that you work in a team on your project, with maybe 2-4 other people. You might bring a team from where you live or work with you into the Impact! program, or you might find team partners from the other people signed up for the program. Grab this opportunity while you can!
