This course places particular emphasis on progression and is notable for providing the opportunity to carry out research in each year.
The first year will give you a grounding in the key skills needed for a history of art degree, studying a wide range of visual and material culture. You will also choose a research-oriented, small-group seminar class.
In the following years you will choose from a variety of broader, thematic lecture and seminar based units, as well as further research-oriented units.
You will undertake one substantial piece of independent research each year and write a dissertation in your final year. There is the option to study abroad in the second year. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
We offer a wide range of subject matter. Recent units have included: Modern Women Artists; Architecture and Urbanism; Cold War Culture; Race and Place; Art and Environmentalism; Art and War; Sculpture and the Body; Audio/Visual Culture; Art and the Black Atlantic; and Art of the Northern Renaissance.
