Course summary

This programme provides an excellent grounding in the main themes and methods of Art History & Visual Culture while developing your critical, imaginative and practical engagement with the social, historical and cultural contexts of theatre.In Art History & Visual Culture, you will learn how to interpret works of art (including architecture and design) as well as images, objects and practices in order to understand contemporary and past societies. Your first year will consist of four core modules, two in each discipline. This will give you a solid foundation in the skills, methods and principles involved in both subjects. During your second and third years you will be able to follow your interests through a wide range of optional modules with the opportunity to undertake a relevant fieldwork and placement module. You can choose to study art and material culture in ancient societies; look in detail at the way art history works; or focus on visual culture within a specific society or time period right up to the modern day. You will have the opportunity to take part in field trips to collections in London and elsewhere, including an intensive study trip to immerse yourself in the art, architecture and visual culture of a specific location in Europe. In Drama you will develop your study of key theoretical approaches: analysing contemporary performance and the place of performance within culture, as well as undertaking an in-depth independent study in your final year of a chosen area of theatre and performance. This will give you a chance to explore a passion of yours in real depth, with guidance from an academic supervisor. Drama modules are taught by staff with expertise in theatre, drama and performance theory from the classical era to the present, and in practice fields including directing, contemporary performance, music and theatre, actor training, applied and socially engaged theatre, dramaturgy, creative industries management, cultural theory and theatre history and technical theatre crafts.Our lecturers in Art History & Visual Culture are at the cutting edge of art, historical and visual culture research. Key members of staff specialise in the history of art and architecture, from the Renaissance to the present, the history, theory and practice of museums and collections, aspects of performance, installation, photography and video arts, and visual culture from antiquity to the present day.
