Discovering the Arts and Humanities

The Open University

Course Information

Studying the arts and humanities helps us to learn about what people thought and felt throughout history, as well as how the things they created influence the world we live in today. The Discovering the Arts and Humanities module from The Open University is built around three themes: ‘reputations’, ‘traditions’ and ‘crossing boundaries’. It invites you to discover people, events, practices, ideas and works of art from three thousand years ago to the present day. No qualifications or previous study experience are needed, and there is lots of support available to help you succeed if this is your first module at university level.

Support from your tutor

You will have a tutor who will help you with the study materials and mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance. If you are new to The Open University, you will find that your tutor is particularly concerned to help you with your study skills. Tuition will take place at face-to-face events, as well as online through tutorials and forums. The location of face-to-face events depends on the distribution of students taking the module. Your tutor will also keep in contact by phone.
