The pursuit of wisdom at Naropa University means learning both about academic subjects and about one's own place in the world. The mission of contemplative education—combining the best of Western and Eastern academic traditions—places Naropa on the cutting edge of the newest and most effective methods of teaching and learning.

This Naropa Course Catalog contains general student information, academic information, and an overview of our programs. It should also help you to locate the program, academic requirements, and specific course information quickly, but we also encourage you to make an appointment with either the admissions department or your advisor.
