Arts for All - It's a Cert!
Following the popularity of its Certificate in Architectural History, the University of Leicester is now offering a new Certificate in the History of Art.
The Certificate offers people with an
interest in art but with no experience of university-level education a chance to
find out if they would like to study at this level, and a means of doing so.
It is also designed to attract those who want to follow a well-structured and well-taught introduction to the history of western art, with a certificate at the end for those who wish to undertake the coursework essays, site visits and examinations.
two-year Certificate course will be available from the University’s Vaughan
College in Leicester, Oakham School in Oakham, Rutland, or the University of
Leicester’s Northampton Centre, Northamptonshire, part of the Leicester
Institute of Lifelong Learning.
certificate provides a part-time alternative to the first year of the
undergraduate degree in History of Art, and for those who successfully complete
the course assignments it will normally guarantee entry into the second year of
the degree course.
course is structured round three ten-week terms, with one three-hour session
each week and site visits, for instance to the National Gallery in London and
Phillip Lindley, Head of the History of Art Department, said: “Lecturers are
drawn from the History of Art Department, all of whom have considerable
experience of teaching adult education courses. This will be an exciting new
course for the department.
