TECHNICAL NOTE: Links are being updated beginning 12-29-15. Many of the previous flyers/link here led to contact information that had changed with Phase II of the Technology Improvement program. Moving into Phase III, a slight reorganization of the top level domains may affect links. Pardon the dust while we update our servers and software. If you think a link is missing, it probably is. We are working ’round the clock to complete these upgrades and updates. Thank you for your patience, and check back shortly!

Detailed Course Descriptions

Below are links to single-page flyers that are enhanced descriptions of just a few of the programs, courses and collections of courses offered by Sherman Institute.  The lead to PDF documents (which may show in your browser, if you have a PDF plugin, or they may download). The Course Catalog, and descriptions shown on the .US site with each course are very short, where these flyers explain things in more detail. Print them, pass them out, link to them to show others, etc. Headings below organize them into the categories corresponding to the Catalog.

[NOTE: Many of these courses are “visible” on our academic site. However, you must be a registered user before you can get into the course materials. You must contact the instructor of the course, take care of enrollment with them, and be otherwise Admitted to Sherman Institute, before being able to take these courses. The .US site runs on Moodle academic software, and everything on that site is “authentication based.” Clicking links into the courses will not work, unless you are logged in, and authorized. The below links are informational flyers only. Contact the instructor for more details, a course syllabus, required textbook information, etc.]

For recent news, new courses coming, etc. visit the S.I. News page!

Also note: Many of these flyers could still point to a web site that was [as of May 2014] retired from service. (Older promo pieces…)  They may also contain incorrect e-mail addresses on our instructors, due to the lightning strike that took down our e-mail server.   If seeking to attend any course and you run into a broken link or contact information, call 803-369-3605 and ask for Aaron.  We’ll get you to the right location immediately, and apologize for these inconveniences.
