A Master List of 1,500 Free Courses

A Master List of 1,500 Free Courses From Top Universities

For the past 14 years, Open Culture has been busy rummaging around the internet and adding courses to an ever-growing list of Free Online Courses, which now features 1,500 courses from top universities.

Let’s give you the quick overview: The list lets you download audio & video lectures from schools like StanfordYaleMITOxford, Harvard and many other institutions. Generally, the courses can be accessed via YouTube, iTunes or university web sites, and you can listen to the lectures anytime, anywhere, on your computer or smart phone.

We haven’t done a precise calculation, but there’s about 50,000 hours of free audio & video lectures here. Enough to keep you busy for a very long time–something that’s useful during these socially distant times.

Right now you’ll find 200 free philosophy courses, 105 free history courses, 170 free computer science courses, 85 free physics courses and 55 Free Literature Courses in the collection, and that’s just beginning to scratch the surface.

You can peruse sections covering AstronomyBiologyBusinessChemistryEconomicsEngineeringMathPolitical SciencePsychology and Religion.

Here are some highlights from the complete list of Free Online Courses. We’ve added a few unconventional/vintage courses in the mix just to keep things interesting.
