History and History of Art

As a historic city filled with world-class galleries and museums, Edinburgh is the perfect place to combine the study of history and history of art. The University is situated at the heart of Edinburgh among world-class galleries and museums, and is an extraordinary place to study art in all its forms. Our Talbot Rice Gallery and the presence of the Edinburgh College of Art within the University ensure that you will have access to unrivalled resources in this area. History of Art will introduce you to art from different periods and world cultures. You will learn how, and for whom, works of art were made, as well as situating artworks within visual and material culture more broadly. Our expertise in the history of art is complemented by the wide range of courses taught in history. These cover historical periods from the early Middle Ages to the most recent past; geographical regions including Britain and Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas; and a wide variety of approaches to the past, including political history, cultural history, social history, economic history, intellectual history, gender history, and global and transnational history.
