A broad Liberal Arts education, with a focus on studying the creation and reception of images in time and space. Our new range of liberal studies degrees provides a true US-style liberal arts education, a first in the UK. You choose a ‘major’ subject area whilst taking a range of ‘electives’ to tailor your degree to match your passions and interests. Every module in our liberal studies programme has been specifically designed for the degree, delivering you a broad-based education which engages you in critical and interdisciplinary thinking. Liberal arts graduates are well-prepared to make the most of opportunities in a fast-moving global economy. The Art History programme explores the production and reception of images and objects across time and space. It combines formal image or object analysis with research into why, when, where and for whom the image or object was produced. Images and objects from across the world are explored in parallel. While in the past, art history focused on drawing, painting, sculpture and architecture, this programme equally engages with wider interdisciplinary contexts in which works are produced, such as social, cultural, political and economic factors. Your studies will include studio experience, fundamental to a full understanding of the creative process. The majority of classes take place in museums, galleries, auction houses and private and corporate collections, in and around London and you will benefit from a range of visiting speakers who are experts in the field.
