Distance education courses potentially offer the opportunity for individuals all over the world to learn about subjects that interest them -- including nonhuman primates. A handful of academic institutions (listed below) have offered distance courses with some degree of nonhuman primate content in the past -- courses delivered in a variety of formats, including the Internet and correspondence. These include specific courses on nonhuman primates and courses in anthropology or other areas which may include some study of nonhuman primates. Please note that this list does not intend to be exhaustive.
Most courses are introductory level, although there might be prerequisites to enrolling in certain cases. In addition, individual institutions will have varying enrollment procedures and fees. You must visit the web sites of the institutions or contact them directly to learn about specific policies.
In addition, a fair number of institutions not listed here offer undergraduate level Anthropology and Psychology courses which may provide a background for further study. See the web sites http://www.ed-x.com and http://www.utexas.edu/world/lecture/ or try a general web search for listings of distance education opportunities in these and other areas.
