Architectural history

Study part-time with Oxford University

Short courses and undergraduate study

Learn to ‘read’ architecture in a critically informed way, and to recognize and differentiate between major architectural styles. Introductory courses are augmented by those that focus on important architectural movements and practitioners, and the architecture of the city of Oxford and the local region.

Many of our short courses, including online courses, weekly classes and some summer schools, can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification, such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
