History of Art and Literature

Engage with great works of art and literature on a degree that combines the study of images with the analysis of words. At UEA, you’ll be studying with a world-leading art collection on campus, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA), and in a UNESCO City of Literature. This course is a great choice if you’re excited about combining the creative and the analytical in your approach to both art and literary criticism. A broad background in two disciplines will mean you’re highly valued by employers in all areas of the arts, as well as in fields such as journalism, publishing, teaching and research. You’ll also have the academic experience needed to pursue postgraduate study. During your degree, you’ll attend lectures taught by highly respected art historians, curators and other art professionals, as well as renowned writers and literary critics. You’ll also take part in smaller seminar groups, designed to build your experience in discussing and presenting your opinions clearly and confidently. Throughout the process you’ll develop your analytical, interpretive and writing skills and become adept at analysing complex information. You’ll graduate a skilled critical thinker, researcher and communicator, ready to launch yourself into your chosen career. This programme benefits from the expertise of two highly respected Schools within UEA. You’ll combine intense reading of literary texts with direct engagement with art and architecture, expanding your knowledge of these two central forms of human culture. And you’ll have opportunities to study works of art first-hand, on-site at the SCVA. After building a firm foundation in both subjects, you can choose from a range of optional modules on the history of art and literature. These allow you to pursue topics that reflect your own interests in the fields of the verbal and the visual: modules cover areas as varied as alternative modernisms, the art of emotion, nonsense and modern writing, and the city in literature and visual culture. In your third-year you’ll have the opportunity to complete a dissertation working alongside a specialist in your chosen area of research, benefiting from supervision and support.
