History of Art

Our course places particular emphasis on progression and is notable for providing the opportunity to carry out research in all years. The first year will give you a grounding in the key skills needed for a history of art degree, studying medieval, early modern, modern and contemporary art history. 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. There is also the option to study abroad in the second year. You will undertake one substantial piece of independent research each year, and write a dissertation in your final year. A wide range of subject matter is available for study. Current units include: Arts of War and Peace, Modern Art in Britain, Art, Music & Modernism, Modern German Art, 19th century Realism, Soviet Art and Culture, Medieval Tuscany, Western Sculpture and the Classical Tradition, Into the Baroque: Art in the Aftermath of the Reformation, Approaches to Cubism, The Art of Memory, Print Culture and Exhibition.
