Certificate Program and Professional Diploma in Astrology
Intensive courses to develop your professional-level skills
Every term includes both electives (some of which may only be offered once per year) and regularly scheduled courses on the Fundamentals of Natal Astrology. You can sign up to audit any of these courses (you will not have homework!), or take them for-credit toward a certificate or the diploma.

- Links every week to written articles, videos and/or presentations to deepen your understanding

- Assignments, which may include quizzes that immediately allow you to check your own understanding and written assignments for instructor feedback
- Access to the course site for an additional 3 months after the course is complete
- Students in the Fundamental series also have an optional "lab" - a one-hour online session devoted to interpreting charts.
