E-learning Course: 

Overview of Citizenship: Acquisition, Derivation and Naturalization

This four-week course covers acquisition and derivation of citizenship, and the requirements for naturalization, including residence, physical presence, good moral character, civics and English language requirements and exemptions, disability waivers, oath requirements and the application process. Throughout the course, participants will review both the law and procedure for acquisition, derivation, and naturalization, including examination of primary and secondary sources and sample application forms.

The course starts on January 8 with access to the e-learning course website and week one assignment. Once you receive your user name and password, you may participate in a variety of activities for self-directed learning, including reading assignments, exercises, sample case files to review, quizzes, and discussion questions.  The course will be interactive, with opportunities for online and real-time discussion among students, and between students and instructors. The course also includes four webinars conducted on consecutive Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. eastern time starting on January 15.  Each webinar lasts approximately ninety minutes, and is recorded and posted on the course website after the webinar is conducted.  Although we encourage participants to attend the live webinars each week, you will be able to listen to and view a recording of any webinar you are unable to attend whenever you choose to do so.
