Are these the only courses and tracks?

Yes. More courses may be added later. Meantime, we can tailor special courses, events, etc. on a per request basis. We plan to launch travel courses in the near future.

Can I take more than one track?

Yes. You can take courses from any of the tracks at any time and mix-and-match to suit your interests. Only those courses within a given track count toward a certificate.

What’s your refund policy?

All courses are non-refundable once you’re enrolled. Depending on your circumstance, we may be able to credit your payment towards a future course in Shakespeare Commons.

What if I have more questions?
