The Great Courses

The Great Courses, formerly known as The Teaching Company, produces 500 lecture courses taught by professors at the nation's leading universities, which they sell on CD, DVD, Audio Download, and Video Download. Their courses vary in length, ranging from 8 to 84 lectures, with lectures lasting either 30 or 45 minutes. The courses cover a wide range of topics in the categories of history, literature, the arts, philosophy, religion, science, and business. Most of their courses are available in both audio and video formats with visual aids included in the video tapings of the professors teaching their course. Their professors are carefully selected through evaluations and auditions from students and customers, and the professors they choose teach at well respected colleges such as Stanford, Georgetown, and many Ivy League colleges. Their products can be purchased online or by calling 1-800-832-2412.
