Online History Courses

University Extension (UEX) offers open enrollment to several self-paced online history courses from The University of Texas at Austin course inventory, which can be started at any time and taken from anywhere.

With UEX self-paced online courses you can:

  • Meet core curriculum requirements.
  • Finish up that last course to graduate.
  • Take a prerequisite for graduate and professional school.

Take up to five months to complete your coursework, with the option to purchase a course extension, if you need more time.

UEX courses will appear on a UT Austin transcript and are transferable. Admission to the university is not required.

Talk to your advisor about how to transfer credit earned with UEX, as degree requirements vary across schools.
