About BA History of Art

Our course places particular emphasis on progression and is notable for providing the opportunity to carry out research in all years. The first year will give you a grounding in the key skills needed for a history of art degree, studying medieval, early modern, modern and contemporary art history. You will also choose a research-oriented, small-group seminar class.

In the following years, you will choose from a variety of broader thematic lecture and seminar-based units, as well as further research-oriented units. There is also the option to study abroad in the second year. You will undertake one substantial piece of independent research each year, and write a dissertation in your final year.

A wide range of subject matter is available for study. Current units include:

  • Arts of War and Peace
  • Modern Art in Britain
  • Art, Music & Modernism
  • Modern German Art
  • 19th century Realism
  • Soviet Art and Culture
  • Medieval Tuscany
  • Western Sculpture and the Classical Tradition
