Course summary

**About This Course**Discover how society’s views, beliefs and actions are recorded in the things we make, use and value. Through the study of archaeology, anthropology and art history, you’ll learn how to examine the visual and material culture of societies across the world, from prehistory to the present.On this unique and dynamic course you’ll gain a strong grounding in all three disciplines - archaeology, anthropology and art history - with a central focus on analysing and interpreting visual and material culture from around the world. You’ll gain key skills in interpreting the past and understanding its role in the present.During your degree you will have the opportunity to study the visual and material cultures of African, Near Eastern, and Pacific societies, and the Mediterranean world. Alongside this you will engage with the arts of Europe and the Americas.**Overview**You’ll study archaeology, anthropology and art history as an integrated whole, and will develop a multi-faceted appreciation of the visual and material culture of a wide range of places and times. You’ll begin to understand how the interaction of people and things is fundamental to humanity.By studying archaeology you’ll gain the ‘long view’ of how people successfully (or unsuccessfully) adapted and changed over hundreds and even thousands of years. Anthropology will provide you with multiple perspectives on how we live and interact now. From art history you’ll gain an understanding of how human creativity has shaped the world we live in, from technological creativity to individual ingenuity.You’ll have the opportunity to study the collections of the world-famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, itself a celebrated icon of modern museum architecture.
