IR Online Online Skills Institutes

As a reminder, skills institutes can be taken in groups of three to satisfy one 3-credit elective with two others for a total of three credits to satisfy three of six required elective credits. Online skills institutes require full- or half-day long immersive live session participation and typically take place over a one- or two-weekend period with very little asynchronous content.


Note that both of the online skills institutes below take place over two consecutive weekends. Students must attend both weekends to gain full credit for a course, not choose one or the other. 
Sign up for these skills institutes occurs at the same time as registration for full 15-week courses, and is associated with the same add/drop deadlines. If you are interested in signing up, or want to learn more about one-credit options, contact your Academic Advisor at ironlineadvising@american.edu.
