Arts and Humanities at The Open University

Arts and Humanities are key to understanding the world in which we live, and how it came to be this way. With c.26,000 students studying Arts in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences studying for one of our named undergraduate degrees, our Cert HE in Humanities, our Dip HE in Humanities, or one of our postgraduate MAs, or researching for a PhD, and a vibrant and successful academic community at the forefront of arts and humanities research, Arts has been at the core of the Open University since its inception.
