'Shakespeare and His World' is coming back!

Sign up for the return of our successful online course

MOOC Shakespeare and his world

We are delighted to announce that following the very successful initial run of our MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) 'Shakespeare and His World', there will be another opportunity to sign up and take part this September. The second run of the 10 week course, made in collaboration with the University of Warwick and FutureLearn, begins on Monday 29 September 2014. We have received a great deal of positive feedback about how much learners enjoyed the course the first time round, so we wanted to offer a second opportunity to take part! The course is led by renowned Shakespearian academic Professor Jonathan Bate, who examines a series of plays and cultural themes alongside a selection of treasures from the archives here at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. There are up to 5 hours of learning materials on offer each week, including forum discussions with other learners and suggestions for further reading, so you can engage as much or as little as you would like. Don't miss this great opportunity to enjoy a fascinating insight into Shakespeare's work, life and times. Find out more and sign up here.
