Courses

Each course includes a full set of class lectures produced in high-quality video accompanied by such other course materials as syllabi, suggested readings, exams, and problem sets. The lectures are available as downloadable videos, and an audio-only version is also offered. In addition, searchable transcripts of each lecture are provided.

Please note that we have recently removed Craig Wright’s, “Introduction To Classical Music,” and Ian Shapiro’s, “Moral Foundations of Political Philosophy,” from this site. Both courses have been updated and are now available through the Coursera platform. Please visit Yale’s home on Coursera to enroll in all of our courses for free.
