Master and Doctoral Program Organization

Programs have a specific transdisciplinary theme and provide a series of constructive online open courses that match the deep theme. International Lions University proposes creative, bottom-up constructive courses and NOT top-down expert courses because we believe in the potential of our student to develop new knowledge and their own expertise.

Creation of new, customized programs and degrees

Students may adopt one of the existing programs or they might want to create a new program that matches a new deep theme, provided that they get the support of a University structure such as a partner university or their International Lions University campus.
