About Arts and Humanities (Art History) at The Open University

This is one of several specialist routes available in our #BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities[R14]#. The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects - including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy and religious studies. You'll then take two specialist art history modules, discovering more about art and visual culture across many periods and places. Through exploring the lavishly illustrated module books, and extensive audio, video and interactive material, you will gain a good understanding of the art-historical debates that shape this exciting subject and develop a range of skills in visual analysis.Alongside your study of art history, you can choose to study a second specialism from the subjects listed above. This will entitle you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options. This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
  • Knowledge and understanding
  • Cognitive skills
  • Practical and professional skills
  • Key skills

The level and depth of your learning gradually increases as you work through the qualification. You'll be supported throughout by the OU's unique style of teaching and assessment - which includes a personal tutor to guide and comment on your work; top quality course texts; e-learning resources like podcasts, interactive media and online materials; tutorial groups and community forums.
