The Course

Summary

The Courtauld offers one undergraduate degree programme, the BA (Hons) History of Art. This seeks to attract students of the highest calibre, who are driven by an insatiable curiosity to learn about the visual arts and their histories.The education we offer equips our students with a critical understanding of art from antiquity to the present, thus giving them an ideal foundation for further academic study. Our BA also inculcates a broad range of transferable skills that qualify our graduates to pursue a wide variety of careers. Taught mainly in small groups, and as often as possible directly in front of original works of art and architecture, our undergraduates learn to think for themselves, and how to communicate their thoughts to others in a lucid, disciplined and professional manner.The undergraduate student who comes to The Courtauld becomes part of a vibrant intellectual community united by the same passion for knowledge about visual culture. Like all of our degree programmes, the BA aims to give our students access to the best available research-led teaching, and to world-class learning resources, starting with our own specialist libraries and the treasures of The Courtauld Gallery, and encompassing the full and rich panoply of relevant materials that are on offer in London. Most students will also experience at least one study trip abroad during the course of their degree.
