Located within the School of Philosophy and Art History, we are ranked top 10 in the UK for Art History (CUG 2018) and ranked 6th among Art History departments in the UK for research excellence (REF 2014). The expertise of staff has never been more relevant. We use philosophy and art as a lens through which to understand the complex visual culture in which we now live, where all communication and interaction has a visual dimension and every cultural and scientific advancement presents moral and ethical challenges. You receive a distinctive curriculum which covers the whole history of art, enabling you to choose from a variety of specialist options, while simultaneously becoming proficient in one or more languages.On this course you spend the third of your four years abroad, experiencing, engaging with, and integrating into another culture.
