Welcome to the IASD Independent Study Program!

IASD offers online courses for those IASD members and non-members who would like to take these as part of an independent study program. 

 We are happy to announce that the following two courses are now available for independent study:

The Science and Psychology of Dreaming, taught by Robert J. Hoss.

This course is a mini-tutorial on the science and psychology of dreaming, which covers:

  •  The Basics
  •  The Psychology
  •  Exceptional Dream Experiences

As an educational tutorial, this course is designed for anyone interested in a summary of some of the theories and research findings related to our basic understanding of dreaming. Although there is still much unknown and even controversial about the nature of dreaming, this course offers a snapshot of some of the general thinking cited from research and theoretical literature.

The Science of Lucid Dreaming, taught by Robert Waggoner.

This course is based on a presentation by Robert Waggoner, an internationally known lucid dream pioneer at the 2018 IASD Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. It covers the history of the first scientific evidence that lucid dreaming is a valid and distinct state of dreaming, and then surveys cutting-edge findings in the field.


Cost and how to enroll:

To take IASD courses please first set up an account by signing up with a name and password. You will then be able to register for any of the courses IASD offers. 

 
The independent study program should appeal to those who prefer to take courses on their own. For individuals who would prefer to take courses in groups, you can also check out the Dream Study Groups Program, which is an interactive program in which course topics are discussed in forums with groups of students over the course of a year.
