You can help educate America

Before you get started, you must know…

  1. Hillsdale offers this course for free because we hope more and more people will gain a better understanding of human nature and our world by studying Austen’s writings. Master novelists such as Jane Austen employ words to represent reality accurately and to reveal truths about human nature and the world in which we live.
  2. Generous donors have funded this online course for you because they appreciate and value education on the great books and human nature – just as you do.
  3. We are grateful you have chosen to partner with Hillsdale College to further your education.
  4. While over 4.2 million people have already taken one of Hillsdale College’s free online courses, there are millions more who have yet to take or even hear about these free courses taught by some of today’s best teacher-scholars in the fields of politics, history, economics, and English. 

So, what does all of this mean?

It means that you play a vital role in educating Americans about human nature through Hillsdale’s online courses.

The knowledge gained from the study of great literature is an essential part of every free citizen’s education. Will you help us reach and teach even more Americans? When you make a gift of $75 today, you will allow 15 more people to hear about this course.
