Whether you’re earning a degree on a full- or part-time schedule, seeking personal enrichment, or exploring professional development, our online art courses give you the flexibility to pursue your creative goals wherever you are.

Online courses meet through Canvas, a virtual classroom for learning. To access course materials all that you need is a connected device with a modern web browser. Live instructors provide a syllabus listing important assignments, deadlines, and virtual office hours.

You’re free to manage your own time, online classes follow the same semester calendar as on campus classes. Instead of attending class at specific times during the week, you’ll access course materials and lectures, participate in discussions and research, take quizzes, and submit work according to your own schedule, as long as you meet the assignment due dates and other deadlines.

Online courses cover the same objectives and competencies as courses offered face-to-face on campus, giving you the full outstanding UW–Madison experience. Enrolling in summer term saves you money to complete your degree in four years with two Summer Terms, rather than taking a fifth year, and you’ll gain more time for internships or other opportunities down the line.
