Online Distance Learning Options

I live in a remote area. I want to take a course that offers certification so I can teach. Can you recommend a good course?

Cindy,

Right now we know of only a few online or distance learning certifications and they are only in botanical art.

Here is an entomology based course, but it is only a small part of a standard degree program:

Cindy,

There are also long distance options from:

Elaine Searle http://www.paintbotanical.com

Academy of Botanical Art http://www.academyofbotanicalart.com

The ASBA offers a long distance critique, but this is only for members.
See http://www.asba-art.org/botanical-art/critiques

I know you said you live in a rural area, but in case it ends up being of any help, you may also be interested in http://artplantaetoday.com/classes-near-you. Maybe there is an option not too far away.
