Exeter University Online Art History Courses

Our online non-accredited Art History Courses offer tuition in early Christian and Byzantine art, Baroque Art, art and architecure of the 19th Century and an introduction to key artistic movements in Western Art between 1900 and 1945.

Our short courses are delivered outside degree programmes - which means that as our students are learning for their own personal development rather than for academic credit, they can study with guidance from an experienced tutor without the pressure or additional costs of exams and essays.

There is no 'typical' student - we welcome learners of all ages and nationalities. The one common trait our students share is their enthusiasm for their subject.

Students may choose our courses because:

  • We welcome students who are new to online study and those who have not studied for some time.
  • There is no need to be in a set place at a set time - students can study online at a time that suits them.
  • We do not expect students to have an academic background in their chosen subject •…but at the same time, our experienced tutors will 'stretch' more advanced students by presenting them with more challenging ideas or more complex material.
  • Students can study a single course, or several, and in any combination.
  • our online courses are an enjoyable way to keep mentally active, learn new things, develop IT skills and communicate with others who share your interests.
