Art History and History

The joint honours programme in Art History and History brings together expertise from two subject areas to give you a wider breadth of study. Students can choose from a wide range of courses. Art History provides a grounding in European and North American art and architecture; from the Ancient Greek world to the present day, as well as subjects in Global Art History. History students, too, can choose pathways of study to suit their individual interests: from Ancient, Medieval, Modern History, Economic and Social History, to History of Science, Technology and Medicine. The emphasis is on flexibility and choice within this joint-degree, which also offers opportunities for field trips and museum and gallery visits. **Aims** **Art History:** - Provide a broad-based knowledge and understanding of art and its histories - Develop student's understanding of the production, circulation, and interpretation of visual culture in specific historical contexts - Promote awareness of the role of the visual arts within different cultures and societies, including our own - Foster awareness of the role of museums and galleries in the production and reproduction of cultural values - Enable students to choose pathways of learning that reflect their own interests - Develop student's intellectual and academic skills so that they are able to undertake independent research - Produce graduates who are ready to embark on a range of career paths, or continue on to postgraduate study - Provide a broad-based knowledge and understanding of art and its histories **History:** - To stimulate critical study of the past; - To develop and extend students' powers of critical and analytical thought and logical argument by applying them to historical interpretation of both primary and secondary sources; - To advance the ability of students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study; - To provide a broadly based and challenging curriculum, based upon the study of diverse historical periods and cultures; - To develop appreciation of a variety of theoretical approaches and methodologies with reference to particular Historical courses and periods; - To produce graduates possessing the transferable skills of self-management and independence essential for employment, postgraduate study, or further training. **Special Features** The emphasis of the course is on flexibility and choice (within this joint-degree), which also offers opportunities for museum and gallery visits and a week-long field trip to a major European city.
