For those living in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, please note the following course, to begin Jan 7, 2013,

The Archaeology and Religion of Ancient Israel, to be taught by Kyle Keimer, PhD, Wednesdays 7-10 pm, at UCLA.

For information on registration, go to https://www.uclaexte...8cert_Wave1wi13 .

The course may be audited or taken for regular university credit, and is merely one of hundreds of courses offered on weeknights and Saturdays.

Other large metropolitan areas of this country (and in many other countries) have universities which offer similar or related courses on languages, history, archeology, and other liberal arts and humanities subjects. Check out the website of your favorite institution and see what is being offered. You may find this a welcome diversion from your regular 8 - 5 job.

Is there anywhere where courses like this may be had online?

You need to go online and look for such courses using Google. UCLA and most other large universities offer all manner of online courses. Here are some initial suggestions:

You can take online language courses from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for credit – http://eteacherbiblical.com/about-eteacher-group (Biblical Hebrew, Modern Hebrew, Aramaic, etc., online, with free introductory classes and webinars)

MEMRA is offering Beginning Ugaritic, http://www.memraonline.com/registration.html

at about @250 per year. Not for credit. They also list Intermediate Ugaritic, but aren't offering it just now.

The Oriental Institute of the Univ. of Chicago has some online Egyptology courses and even a hieroglyphs by mail course, see https://oi.uchicago.edu/events/courses.html .

Quartz Hill School of Theology (QHST) is teaching Ugaritic also, http://www.theology.edu/ugraintr.htm .

I just ran across another possiblity which might interest you:

Macquarie University offers an MA in Ancient History with units in Egyptology. It also offers an MA in Coptic Studies if you are interested in this period. See http://www.mq.edu.au/about_us/faculties_and_departments/faculty_of_arts/department_of_ancient_history/postgraduate_coursework_programs .
