Course summary

On our course you explore the interactions and differences between history and the visual arts in history and investigate the ways in which the two disciplines can be integrated. ‘Histories’ are a challenge and we encourage you to look beyond simplistic ideas which offer works of art as merely a way of documenting a kind of ‘truth’. At Essex you understand the ways in which history, ideas and ideologies are manifested in images and challenge the definitions and perceptions of what documentation and evidence might be. You study history and art history together in order to appreciate the relationships between them.You spend your third year on a placement gaining relevant work experience within an external business or organisation, giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market and providing you with key contacts within the industry.
