Today is the starting day of the course Introduction to Sociology, free course from Professor Mitch Duneier, from Princeton University, on Coursera.
Just recently I found out about this web-site that offers free courses from very prestigious universities (MIT, Princeton, Stanford, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, etc). It was just at the time when I was wondering how can I continue studying about interesting subjects, perhaps at some high-ranked university and still work. The page says “Courses for Everyone”, so naturally, I signed up for almost all courses…now thinking that I should let go of at least a few 🙂
Anyway, what better way to engage yourself in mindful study and still get rewarded for it, as you get a certificate at the end if you finish the exams, than attending these courses that are taught by one of the best professors in some of the best universities in the world? Additionally, the motivation you get from finishing a course that is followed by so many students over the world is priceless.
However, the most beautiful thing for me is the diversity of courses and the possibility to learn subjects that you haven’t been able to study otherwise. Plus, the feeling of constant improvement towards your personal development and giving yourself a chance to extend your skills is very inspiring.
I highly recommend everyone, to at least check the courses. I am sure that there is a course for everyone’s taste.
