Additional Content

These workshops are self-guided, "offline" versions of our online workshops at HOW U. You receive the same curriculum and supplemental materials, but you do the work completely on your own, making them an ideal choice for students who truly want to work at their own pace. In contrast to our online workshops, where class is "in session" for a specified period of time, there's no set time line for an independent study class, you could approach it as an intensive crash course, pick it up on weekends over several months, or whatever works best for you.
