The Department offers a stimulating and challenging range of undergraduate units that draws directly on the research interests of its members of staff. At undergraduate level our programmes focus on western art and architecture and provide you with a broad knowledge of developments from medieval to modern times. The syllabus embodies a clear development from your first year of studies to your third year and you will be prepared to undertake a piece of genuine research by the final year.
Useful information for prospective undergraduate students can be found in the Undergraduate prospectus. This includes details about the university and about its various undergraduate programmes, advice about money, details of accommodation, and so on. The current year's undergraduate handbook, accessible from the current undergraduates page contains useful summaries of units currently offered within our degree programmes. You may also found useful information specific to the study of History of Art at the University of Bristol by using the links below.
Prospective students are welcome to visit the Department but please note that we are unable to deal with ad hoc visits. However, we will be happy to meet you on either the University Open Day or the Department's own Open Day.
Held twice a year in June and September this is a chance for any potential student to visit the Department and the University. Departmental staff are on hand to describe our programmes and answer enquiries from potential applicants.
