Need a great last-minute Father's Day gift? MasterClass is 50% off right now

Dad loves learning — and he'll love it even more when he finds out you scored a serious deal.

Need a great last-minute Father's Day gift? MasterClass is 50% off right now

Dad doesn't need (or let's face it, want) another gadget or gizmo for Father's Day. Or a personalized doodad that'll collect dust on a shelf somewhere. So, if you're still stuck on what to get him for Father's Day (if you're here, then I'm assuming that's the case), then I have one(ish) word for you: MasterClass. Now through Father's Day, you can get 50% off an annual subscription, which means it comes out to as little as $5 a month or $60 for the full year!

Introduce Dad to the wonderful world of MasterClass with a standard annual membership. That means he'll get 200+ expert-led courses for just $5 a month!

An annual subscription gives Dad access to hundreds of online courses taught by experts and leaders in their field — Aaron Franklin will school him on Texas-style barbecue, Steve Martin leads a crash-course on comedy, Bill Clinton offers insight on inclusive leadership, to name a few.

These are not one-shot quickie events; they’re layered, thorough, well-thought-out classes with many installments. Case in point: Shonda Rhimes’ MasterClass on TV writing is 30 parts (6.5 hours) and includes not only how to write and pitch TV ideas but deep analyses of scripts from Rhimes’ shows, including Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. Penn & Teller’s 17-part MasterClass teaches the fundamentals of coin and card magic, but it also delves into the psychology of creating a sense of amazement and awe.

This treasure trove of knowledge is the gift that keeps on giving. He can choose from 13 main categories, everything from writing to technology, then drill down until he finds a specific topic that interests him. As the year goes on, MasterClass will drop new courses, so he'll always have something fresh to pick from. Their latest release: a three-part MasterClass with chef José Andrés where he shares the history and influence of his favorite dishes, including arepas.

The standard membership is down to $5 a month right now, but you're better off going with the Duo membership ($8 a month/$96 a year) for maximum flexibility. The Duo membership lets two different devices watch at the same time, plus Dad can even download sessions and watch them while he's on the go. On the other hand, the standard membership can only be used on one device when connected to WiFi. The gift of learning is priceless, so $96 for a full year of MasterClass is a steal, if you ask me!

Let Jodie Foster teach you the ins and outs of filmmaking. Grab a Duo membership, so he can watch classes on different devices or download them for future use.

As Robert Louis Stevenson once wrote, “The world is so full of a number of things/I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.” MasterClass delivers these things in abundance, making it a gift that actually keeps on giving once Father's Day wraps.
