History of Art and Philosophy

History of Art allows you to develop a critical understanding of the ways in which art has been produced and received over time and in different cultures – and even the differences in what “art” has meant to people. You’ll develop a broad understanding of key approaches and methods through core modules, where you’ll learn to read an image rather than seeing it. Optional modules across history of art, cultural studies and museum studies will also allow you to pursue your interests. What’s the difference between belief and knowledge? Why are we here? How do we know what we know – and can we ever know anything at all? Philosophy at Leeds explores fundamental questions about how we understand the world. Through core and optional modules you’ll learn how to construct arguments and study key topics such as ethics and logic, as well as specialist knowledge in topics from ancient and moral philosophy to the ethics of life and death, philosophy of language or aesthetics.
