Independent Courses On Demand at the Franklin School of Integrative Health Sciences cover a wide range of public health, preventive health, and integrative health topics. If you want to master one of the topics in our Independent Courses but want to set your own start date and study at your own pace, Independent Courses On Demand provide you that flexibility.
These courses contain the same in-depth material available in our scheduled Independent Courses, but all of the lessons are delivered at once and you are provided the email address of a personal course instructor for academic support. You have a full six months of access to each course, allowing you to work through the material as quickly or slowly as you like.

You will be granted access to the entire course immediately after registration. The course is typically completed in 6 weeks but you are provided a full 6 months of access (185 days) to allow you to study at your own pace. This allows ample time to review notes, download all downloadable files, and ask follow-up questions.
Independent Courses On Demand are asynchronous, so they are not delivered in real time and you are not required to be online at any specific time.
Lessons are available all at once and you will receive the name and email address of your personal instructor immediately after registration. You can email your instructor at any time during your course access with questions about the modules. Your instructor is available weekdays to respond to questions and will typically respond within 1-2 business days.
Register now, begin whenever you are ready, and work at your own pace. You will have access to the course for 6 months to allow ample time for course completion, review, and application.

Assignments are not required in Independent Courses, but each lesson does include practical application exercises. We strongly recommend completing each exercise and asking your instructor any questions you may have. Scheduled Independent Courses also include access to a discussion forum to interact with classmates; questions and discussions about application exercise can be discussed there as well. This will maximize your course experience.
Independent Courses at the FSISH are revised and updated frequently and many of the materials are created or developed exclusively for your class.
A wide range of learning materials, including PDF handouts, downloadable research studies, and online lectures are utilized. PDFs, handouts, and other printable resources are downloadable. Videos, lectures, and interactive activities are not downloadable.
