Self-paced and independent classes

Self-paced classes are offered as alternatives to regular classes in some lower-division computer science courses. These classes allow you to work at your own pace (subject to some constraints determined by the course), with most of the learning completed through study guides, workbooks, texts and frequent quizzes.

Before taking one of the self-paced classes, you should consider whether you are sufficiently motivated to do the work without having very specific deadlines and an instructor. The UC Berkeley Self-Paced Center has more information about these classes.
