Courses on longtermism

Years ago I wrote a blog post listing all the university courses on effective altruism I was able find. I have since tried to keep the list updated, as I stumble upon new courses or people draw my attention to them. As a number of courses have recently been offered specifically on longtermism and related topics, I figured that instead of adding them to the original list, I could create a new one with this more restricted focus.

If you think I’m missing anything, as always, please let me know.

(Dr Schneier informs me that, regrettably, the materials for his course on catastrophic risk have not been preserved.)

With thanks to Prof. Shelly Kagan for sharing the syllabus for his course (and adding a helpful introductory note) and to Bastian Stern for discovering many of the courses listed.
