bring out the fascinating aspects of the subject material

This is hard to translate except literally which would be "bring out the [fascination|allure|glamour|charm] of the subject material".

Perhaps it is an otherwise boring university course that they are trying to convince you to take anyway promising to reward you by revealing the fascinating aspects of an otherwise dull subject.
