The course is tuition-free, and all the necessary readings and
materials are freely available in this web site (you may also order printed versions). The student may
have complete access to this course, free of charge. However, the
dialogue between student and teacher is an important part of the
learning experience -- and for that, we unfortunately must
recognize that we have some costs.
How the Online Course Works

A left-hand menu frame is always in view (if you let it be, and
if you have a frames-compatible browser). Here you will find
links to each part of the course. You may toggle between the

Main Menu, so that you never lose track of
what you have been looking at. You may also wish to view lessons
in one browser window, and readings in another window.
To answer questions, simply type your response into the text box
beneath each question. When you're finished, click the "Send
Answers..." button at the bottom.
If you don't wish to use the online forms, you may save a plain text version of each lesson, and use it in your own word processor. Just click on the link for the "plain text version", and use your web browser to save the frame.
You may go through the course
at your own pace, of course -- but we suggest waiting for teacher
feedback on each lesson before submitting the next one.
When you complete the course, you will be issued a certificate.
Do We Offer Academic Credit?
The Henry George Institute is not authorized to grant academic
credit for its courses. At various times, however, other
institutions have seen fit to grant credit for our courses. That
is entirely their decision, but the Institute will happily
furnish information on its curriculum upon request.
