Course summary

Art represents power. Art reflects society. Art makes us think and feel. Studying the history of art helps us see how we got where we are today. And how the future might look.You'll explore visual cultures across periods, media and societies. You'll also examine the language used to talk about them.All the time you'll be questioning. Why that material? Why that subject? How did people react then? What does it mean now?After introductory modules you'll have free choice of specialist topics. This allows you to follow your passions and explore new interests as you develop.We make a point of getting out of the classroom:- Funded field trip to a major European city where you'll develop your own project in response to what you see and experience- On-campus galleries at Lakeside Arts are integral to our teaching- Regular visits to study sites and objects at first handWe have close links with Nottingham's dynamic arts scene - including the award winning Nottingham Contemporary and the artist-led Primary. You can also gain practical skills through our curatorial group, Crop Up Gallery.**Other ways to study History of Art:**This course is also available with a Foundation Year. You may also combine History of Art with English, Archaeology, or History in our joint honours programme, or study alongside multiple disciplines in our BA Liberal Arts.
