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.
