The Courtauld is the foremost centre in Britain for the study of art history, of conservation and curation and enjoys an international reputation. Through our Short Courses department, The Courtauld’s scholarly expertise is shared with everyone interested in art and art history. Our programmes cover a global range of historical periods and art-historical themes, and include a variety of formats.
Short courses are led by specialists in their field – faculty members, alumni or associates of The Courtauld – who combine scholarly excellence and an enthusiasm for their subject with the ability and willingness to communicate with a non-specialist audience. All you need to take part in, and benefit from our courses, is a passion for the visual arts and for art history, an open mind and a willingness to learn, along with a good command of the English language. Courses are not assessed and while we provide extensive course materials on our Virtual Learning Environment for most parts of the programme, it is up to you how much preparatory and subsequent study you wish to undertake.
All our programmes are running online until the end of the autumn term 2021. Beyond the pandemic, our online learning is here to stay, so that we can continue to include all those in our teaching who for a variety of reasons cannot be with us on campus.
All short courses have been programmed by Dr Anne Puetz.
