It’s been a few years well-known universities started offering some of their courses online to everyone – student or not – and in some cases free of charge. You were probably very excited when you first heard about the concept and bookmarked various courses that you wanted to attend at specific times. (You know, because you wanted to give yourself the space to really get into the material.)

Well, maybe now is the time for you to bite the bullet and enroll. The next step is to choose a course. To narrow the field, the good people at Business Insider have compiled a list of nine free online courses offered by New York University (NYU) that span multiple disciplines.

We should note that although the courses themselves are free, if you want to get actual certification for the course, you will have to pay for them. Anyway Here are some of your options.
