What is Urantia University Institute

What is Urantia University Institute?

Urantia University Institute (UUI) was set up as part of a long-range plan to develop an advanced university grounded in the cosmic ideals and ideas found in The Urantia Book.  As an independent and unaffiliated non-profit organization, UUI’s mission is to provide diverse learning paths for students in an online educational environment in which to explore, discern, and actualize the truths and knowledge found in The Urantia Book and to correlate them with other academic disciplines.

How do I take a UUI class?

UUI classes are offered online in an e-learning environment utilizing our private Wikispaces classrooms where students engage each other on a real-time basis. The classes encompass instructional videos, selected reading assignments, written learning exercises, online class discussions, meditation/prayer practices, and weekly webinars led by the instructor(s).  A typical class is four weeks in length.  The academic year is divided into three semesters—fall, winter and spring.   

Curriculum at Urantia University

What kind of curriculum does UUI offer?

UUI currently offers a series of classes which introduce each part of The Urantia Book and highlight its major themes and concepts to newer and intermediate readers as well as classes which provide a general overview of the book and helpful ways to study The Urantia Book. The classes culminate in a Capstone Project by which students can demonstrate what they have learned.

Who are these classes for?

We have designed our first series of introductory classes on The Urantia Book primarily to give newer and less experienced readers a brief but meaningful survey of the major concepts presented in The Urantia Book. However, these classes provide a fruitful learning experience for any student of The Urantia Book.  Intermediate and advanced classes in Urantia Book studies will be added over time.
