Online Courses

Online Courses are typically between four to eight weeks long. They offer each student a chance to engage deeply with subject material over an extended period of time, all at their own pace. Keep on track with regular chats and other interactions with accessible faculty, and discuss the course material with classmates in online forums. Course topics range from archives and collections, to exhibitions and museum education.
