[2022] 200 Chemistry Courses to Expand Your Knowledge of the World

There are quite a number of high-quality courses you can take for free online to learn various aspects of beginning or advanced chemistry!

Chemistry Courses Banner

Look at the world around you — what do you see? There is all this “stuff” that things are made of, and there is even more “stuff” that we can’t see (for example oxygen or microorganisms). This is why chemistry has been and always will be relevant.

But chemistry is even more important in our modern technological age, where we step on brakes with ceramic composite brake pads, look through lightweight glasses with polycarbonate lenses, play tennis with carbon fiber racquets, manufacture biological protein-based medicines, and investigate alternatives to fossil fuels. All this points to the foundational nature of chemistry, which covers the physical building blocks of “stuff”, whether it is organic or inorganic.

So if you could benefit from learning about this further, or want to improve your understanding of the world around us, check out this list of courses below — and get your chemistry on!

Quick note: While many of these courses do come with fees, all of them are available to audit for free in full or in part. If you’re new to MOOCs and want to learn more (including how fees work in these courses), check out our Beginner’s Guide to Massive Open Online Courses. Not all courses offer a certificate.
