Welcome back for Blast Courses 2024!

About the program:

That’s right: AGHI is proud to boast a whopping FOURTEEN new courses for Summer 2024, all gathering students from all places and all interests for our 5-week online interactive courses. Blast Courses are all about asking good questions, starting with some basics—including this year, what was it like to be a woman in ancient Egypt? What do creative writing and architecture have in common? What do movies about slavery get right (and wrong)?—and then digging into these topics with a specialist, early-career instructor. No homework, no grades, no requirements, no fees. Just the chance to learn and ask your instructor real questions in real-time, plus to engage with other students around the world who are also interested in these subjects. If we define the humanities as all the subjects (arts, culture, society, philosophies, past and present), then Blast Courses in the Humanities are a great way to see the world afresh through the lens of a particular field, specialty, or skillset.


begins TODAY so click through to our Blast Courses homepage, read about the courses you might enjoy, and sign up! Students are welcome to take one, two, or all fourteen courses. (Just pay attention to the course times: some classes will include a live meeting each week, though recordings will almost always be provided if you can’t make it.)

Any questions, requests, or updates for us? Email [email protected] and mention “Blast”!

Courses blast off starting the week of July 8th!
