RBdigital Gateway > Great Courses

For Your Most Inquiring Minds:

While there are many professors who are great, some stand out as exceptionally insightful and impressively thorough, bringing home tough concepts in a way that makes subjects accessible and interesting. These professors make learning an adventure to be experienced rather than a chore to be accomplished.

Of the more than 500,000 college professors in the world, only a select few are chosen to teach one of The Great Courses. They include award-winning experts and professors from the most respected institutions in the world and were chosen based solely on one factor: their ability to teach.

The courses range from a myriad of subjects and includes:

  • History — Study ancient and biblical times, medieval Europe, Eastern and Western civilizations, as well as how these historical periods still impact society.
  • Health — Dive into courses on meditation, nutrition, natural healing and brain fitness.
  • Science — Learn from America‚Äôs leading scientists in numerous areas of study ranging from biology, astronomy & space, engineering & technology and beyond.
  • Language Arts — learning leadership, thinking and communication skills in both professional and personal lives are essential to get a head.
  • And Much More!
