This wide-ranging degree course benefits from two internationally-renowned faculties. You’ll study history and art history in parallel, analysing human experience, and its artistic expression, though the ages. You will also have the opportunity to study works of art first hand at the renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA) on campus. This course is ideal if you want to understand how the history of human life and society interacts with creative and artistic worlds. Gaining a strong background in two disciplines, you’ll be able to follow many of our leavers into positions in national museums and university departments in Britain and abroad. You’ll also be a highly desirable candidate for work in the media, arts administration, archaeology and academia, as well as many careers beyond your subject, such as teaching or law. On this interdisciplinary course you’ll learn the fundamental skills, issues and ideas of your chosen fields of study and hone your skills as a critical thinker and communicator. You’ll develop the archival and visual skills to analyse both artworks and historical sources, and explore different methods of interpretation. As part of two UEA Schools, you’ll benefit from two centres renowned for their teaching excellence. You’ll be surrounded by world-leading faculty members, including art critics, historians and arts practitioners. You’ll discover how human life and society has been shaped throughout history by creativity and artistic production. And you will learn about the ways art and visual culture has been influenced by the great changes and movements of history. Having gained a strong foundation in your subjects in your first year, in your second and third years, you can choose to focus on particular areas that interest you. You’ll gain a wide-ranging and rigorous understanding of past lives and cultures as they have been interpreted by historians and art historians alike. In your third-year you’ll have the opportunity to complete a dissertation and receive supervision and support from an authority in the field, taking your academic enquiry to the next level.
