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 look at how art is both written and talked about.All the time you'll be questioning. Why that material? Why that subject? How did people react then? What does it mean now?Our first year gives everyone the same foundations. After that you'll have free choice of specialist topics. This allows you to follow your passions and study new interests as you learn more. Explore widely or follow a theme such as politics or feminism.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.**Other ways to study History of Art**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.**Foundation Year**This course is also available with a Foundation Year - aimed at developing potential and diversifying our recruitment.It is not necessary to have studied Art or History of Art to apply for this course.
