Course summary

Studying History of Art alongside History is a highly complementary pairing, as you investigate past and present cultures - and the process of human creativity itself.

Whatever your interests - whether cultural, social, military, political, economic or religious history - there is someone at Birmingham teaching your kind of history. Moreover, historians in other departments expand the range of modules on offer, notably in the fields of Byzantine and African history.

Excellent employability

Over 90% of our students enter work or further study within six months of graduation (DLHE 2017). As a History of Art graduate, you can join the 40% of the University’s former students who stay in Birmingham after their studies. You may also be eligible to apply for one of our 6 paid internships with the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, or with other cultural organisations, through the Cultural Intern Scheme. There are also plenty more work and internship opportunities in the city and through the College of Arts and Law Careers team, who also host events such as ‘Careers in History of Art’.

As a History and History of Art student you will have an excellent opportunity to develop skills that are attractive to employers.
