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. At Leeds, you can become fluent in Spanish while gaining an insight into the history, culture and politics of Spain and Latin America. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to the history and culture of Spain and Hispanic America, and you’ll choose optional modules on topics that interest you. You’ll also benefit from the Spanish government’s cultural arm, the Instituto Cervantes, and the Catalan government’s Ramon Llull Institute, which are based on campus.
