Self-Paced Online Courses (SPOCs)
You can take these classes online, at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home through streaming video or downloadable audio. By taking advantage of these self-paced online courses, you can progress through the Nitartha Institute curriculum at a schedule and pace that suits you.
You also have access to posted study questions, recommended readings, and exam questions, and you have the ability to contact a distance learning advisor with questions.
We recommend that you take the curriculum in sequence, beginning with the Foundation curriculum. Within the Foundation curriculum it is particularly important to begin with Mind and Its World I: Valid Cognition and its companion course Clear Thinking before proceeding through the rest of the Foundation curriculum.
For these Self-Paced Online Courses, the list of required texts for each class can be found on the corresponding Foundation and Intermediate Curriculum course pages. You are responsible for purchasing your course texts. To order, please contact the bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org
