Coursera Now Offering Complete Bachelor’s and Master’s Programs–With Tuition Reduced by 70%

As we observed last Octo­ber, Cours­era has been under­go­ing an evo­lu­tion of sorts. When the ed tech com­pa­ny start­ed out, it offered an array of indi­vid­ual cours­es to stu­dents world­wide. A lit­tle of this. And a lit­tle of that. Now, they’re increas­ing­ly mov­ing towards cours­es that work togeth­er in sequences. First came “course spe­cial­iza­tions”–col­lec­tions of cours­es that allow stu­dents to gain a mas­tery of spe­cial­ized top­ics like Deep Learn­ing, Data Sci­ence (Johns Hop­kins), Busi­ness Fun­da­men­tals (Whar­ton), Dig­i­tal Mar­ket­ing (Uni­ver­si­ty of Illi­nois), and Big Data (UC San Diego). Next it was just a log­i­cal jump to offer­ing full-blown Bach­e­lor’s and Mas­ter’s pro­grams at a dis­count­ed price (rough­ly 1/3 the usu­al cost.) As of this month, Cours­era offers one Bach­e­lor’s pro­gram (Com­put­er Sci­ence from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Lon­don), one MBA, and eight Mas­ter’s pro­grams. The full list of degree pro­grams appears below:
