Art History: World Art and Cultural Heritage II course now available online

Enroll into our new Ontario Online Art History: World Art and Cultural Heritage II course will be offered again in January 2017.

Watch the video above for an overview of the course.

Here’s what Dr. McQueen has to say about the course: “World Art & Cultural Heritage II offers students the opportunity to complete course work at their own pace. Dynamic presentations include materials on art works and UNESCO World Heritage Sites from around the globe, from the Renaissance period to the present day.  Assignments take students off campus to explore galleries and museums in their local communities.  Tutorials include specially created interviews that introduce students to art world professionals across the province, from the Art Gallery of Ontario to the National Gallery.  This innovative online course is designed to help students understand the significance of fostering knowledge and preserving cultural heritage in today’s complex world, and to learn how they can become leaders contributing in their local communities and as global citizens.”

From a student who enrolled in the course last year: “This past winter term I completed ART HIST 1AA3 and found the course incredibly well organized and informative in its online format. I thoroughly enjoyed the assignments and tests, and I gained a lot from the practical exercises (ie. going to a local gallery). I wanted to thank you for creating such an innovative online course experience! As a science student it can be difficult to pursue interests in the humanities, but your course made it very possible to do so.” (posted 26 November 2015).
