The fee for this program is $ 750 USD + HOUSING - (Earthship Housing: $ 450 USD for shared room, $ 600 USD for private room, $ 800 USD for double private with bathroom)
Earthship Academy Graduation Requirements:
TAOS ACADEMY SESSIONS: Complete an Academy Session in Taos or a Global Session (95% attendance in the classroom and participation in hands-on work as well as a passing grade on the Final Exam are required).
FIELD STUDIES: Students receive credit towards this requirement by participating in an official Earthship Biotecture Field Studies project. Field Studies opportunities are intended to help further students’ knowledge of hands-on building techniques by inviting them to work alongside the Earthship Crew on a new build. They are usually offered 2 to 3 times a year in the US and internationally. Projects range in duration from 2-8 weeks. There are two types of Field Studies offered: client builds, which have no fees involved and humanitarian builds, which have fees that go directly towards materials and nominal wages for EB staff leading the build. For either type of Field Studies, students are responsible for their own transportation, food and lodging.
INDEPENDENT STUDY: The Independent Study may take place anywhere in the world and may be concrete (launching a demonstration project in China, staging and facilitating a relief project in Haiti) or digital (designing a CAD model of an Earthship city in Turkey, mapping Pockets of Freedom in Australia). Students may propose their Independent Study after they complete the Academy Session and Field Studies requirements. Independent Studies must receive written approval from Academy Staff and are subject to review to qualify for credit.
