Great People Love The Great Courses

“I listen in my car and feel like I am sitting in Dr. Ehrman’s classroom. He speaks in a conversational tone that I am able to follow, but the ideas and analysis challenge me to think. I have listened to most, or all, of his courses several times and will buy whatever course he teaches.”

Bobby R.

“I’m a long-time fan. We signed up this year for The Great Courses Plus, and both my daughters have used the lectures for help in understanding calculus and physics classes in high school and college. They found the teaching in your courses to be so clear and easy to understand—as good as having a tutor! I love how you can search by subject to bring up individual lectures.”

Christina C.

“A wonderfully egalitarian and comprehensive approach that makes great education available to everybody. Fun and beneficial on so many levels; for example, an educated populace is incredibly important in maintaining a democracy. Here one can learn about almost anything via excellent instructors and variety! Well done!”

Ana R.

“Whatever formal education you may receive in youth, it is only an outline. An adult’s bright and inquiring mind needs to constantly expand and fill in their knowledge. The Great Courses fill that need.”

Deborah C.

“I love these courses and the professors. Excellent for those who will forever have a thirst for knowledge.”
