Udacity is excited to announce five premiere classes that are now open for enrollment! This time around, we are expanding the breadth of our courses by offering classes in physics, Intro to Physics, and mathematics, Intro to Statistics and Logic & Discrete Mathematics

Premiere courses will begin again on June 25, 2012. Each week for seven weeks a new unit video will be released but students are not expected to stay on this course trajectory since we know everyone schedule is different.

In addition to our new course offerings, all of our previous classes will be open enrollment, which means you can enroll anytime and start the class at anytime.
