Fall 2024

Course offerings for the Fall 2024 term include selections in History, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Social Sciences, Writing, and more.

TMI's Learning Method:

What's it like to learn at TMI? Our courses promote shared inquiry in small group discussions led by facilitators rather than lecturers. In our approach, learning is cooperative rather than competitive, and emerges from active participation and respectful listening. You can take individual courses that interest you, or work toward a structured bachelor of arts degree or comprehensive certificate that involve additional coursework.

Our Values:

Curiosity: We believe in an ongoing desire to learn and improve.
Creativity: We value imaginative explorations of ideas.
Openness: We value the exchange of ideas, and we respect all voices.
Community: We value and cultivate a community of learners.

Share your curiosity at TMI!


Bring-a-Friend Promotion for Fall 2024:

This year, TMI is offering a discount to participants who bring a new student to TMI. Do you know someone who may want to attend the same TMI course as you? Invite them to join and both you and your friend will receive the New Participant rate ($100 plus a $40 administrative fee). Don’t miss out on the opportunity and help spread the word about TMI!

*Applicable to courses for which a New Student rate is available. To take advantage of this promotion, please register by phone or in person during our opening hours (Monday to Thursday).
