Online Courses

Learn new skills and explore unusual topics.

Our online courses offer deep and dynamic learning in underexplored disciplines—from lockpicking and experimental perfumery to reading gravestones and recreating ancient recipes. Designed and taught by subject-matter experts and experienced educators, these live, interactive courses offer opportunities to explore niche topics and skills. We offer two types of courses: seminars and lecture series. Our seminars provide an intimate, discussion-based learning experience, and our lecture series are lively, large-group classes designed for either asynchronous or live participation. No matter which course topic or style you choose, you’re sure to emerge with new skills, knowledge, connections, and perspectives.
