Independent Study:

In addition, an Independent Study Online format is offered for those who cannot take the scheduled Online Class. We believe the richest online option is the scheduled Online Class, and even better is a regular Perspectives class or an intensive. We invite you to consider these options before registering for the Independent Study class. 

The Independent Study option is to be completed in 6 months, is offered only at Certificate level ($190), and is a self-paced environment.
