Though he earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1985, Wesleyan alumnus Jonathan Haber is on a mission to earn a BA in philosophy through taking MOOCs (massive open online courses), according to The Boston Globe. He plans to enroll in 32 MOOCs in one year, and has already completed his “freshman year.” One of his courses is President Michael Roth’s The Modern and the Postmodern¬†on Coursera.
