About BA History of Art

This course places particular emphasis on progression and is notable for providing the opportunity to carry out research in each year.

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 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.

We offer a wide range of subject matter. Current units include: German Expressionism; Architecture and Urbanism; Cold War Culture; Introduction to Modern Art; Art and War; Sculpture and the Body; Modernism; and The Black Atlantic.
