In 1998 the University of Western Sydney, Nepean, in Australia began an Internet-based Masters in Astronomy degree, which included a compulsory subject on "Topics in the History of Astronomy". In this paper we document the nature of this subject as presented in 2001. We also discuss special problems associated with Internet graduate astronomy programs, and announce new Internet Masters and Doctoral degrees in astronomy offered by James Cook University, Townsville, Australia.
