This programme will give you a thorough grounding in the main themes and methods of Art History & Visual Culture and English. In English, you will develop your expertise in subjects that range from early medieval to contemporary literature, film and creative writing, with options from amongst these disciplines in all three years of study. In Art History & Visual Culture, you will learn how to interpret works of art (including architecture and design) and images, objects and practices in order to understand contemporary and past societies. You will be able to follow your interests through a wide range of optional modules: you can choose to study art and material culture in ancient societies; look in detail at the way art history works; or focus on visual culture within a specific society or time period right up to the modern day. The first year will see you split your time equally between English and Art History & Visual Culture with a total of three core modules, and three optional. You will have the opportunity to take part in field trips to collections in London and elsewhere. During your second and third years you can choose modules that draw on the resources of museums and galleries, the University’s own collections of fine art and sculpture, and the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum. In your third year you will also write a dissertation in English Literature, Creative Writing or Art History & Visual Culture.
