About FTU Independent Study Courses

If you prefer to learn on your own, Family Tree University independent study courses are perfect for you. These classes are self-guided, "offline" versions of our online courses. 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 courses, where class is "in session" for a specified four-week period, 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.

A digital download gives you instant access to the materials to your computer. After downloading a ZIP file of the materials, unzip it, and you'll be able to access all the course materials, which are in Word and PDF format.
