August is upon us and our students at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies are preparing for the next round of courses beginning on August 2nd. You still have a few days to join them. Check out the complete list of our 230+ courses here. There is so much more to discover!
Registering for our online courses allows you to pursue your genealogical education in a format that is adaptable to your schedule and availability. Courses have a start date and a deadline for completion; however, you can set your own pace for coursework within that timeframe. Courses can be scheduled together or spaced apart. This allows you to complete courses individually or towards a certificate program based on the work load you can carry at that time. We have full-time students as well as students who are employed full-time and working on their courses at the same time. Most certificate programs require 40 courses to be completed – how long you take is up to you.
Focused for Success
Be aware that independent study takes discipline and focus! The definition of “Focused” (Merriam-Webster.com Thesaurus, Merriam-Webster, https://www.merriam-webster.com/thesaurus/focused. Accessed 01 Aug 2021) gives us some guidelines.
It requires us to have our mind fixed on our education goals and not scattered in many directions. When our efforts are concentrated on a specific research stream, we will gain a comprehensive and thorough overview of each topic through the course materials. In other words, we need to be actively engaged – the opposite of distracted and scattered. This may be a challenge in the current season, but pick a focus and then learn all you can about that topic. Organization is the key to developing our research strategies and education goals.
The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers quality online education with over 230+ courses to choose from. Some of our courses are topic/country-specific, or provide insight into research methodology, while others are skill-building courses to maximize your research time. The first Monday of a new month means another rotation of courses will start on August 2nd. Most courses feature 6 modules over an 8-week period, easily adapted to most busy schedules. Many courses have been bundled into packages to provide discount options. Take a look at our course calendar and see which courses will accomplish your genealogical education goals. Register today
