Course summary

This degree provides a unique focus on works of art as physical objects. You will gain comprehensive skills in art history, together with a thorough understanding of artists' techniques and questions of materiality and technology, both at the time a work of art was made, and subsequently as its ages and deteriorates.

Your learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures and seminars, and may include visits to galleries, museums, monuments, film archives and sessions in the Material Studies Laboratory. Seminars may relate to a lecture series and involve travel within the UK or abroad. On a more frequent basis, first-year thematic seminars take place at London's many art collections and exhibitions.

Assessment

Coursework, essays, oral participation and written examinations will all be used as means of formal assessment of your work.

Careers

You will gain the skills necessary to carry out historical and technical projects, communicate effectively, interpret material analysis, and to pursue academic research or take up responsible employment in a variety of contexts.

This BA provides an excellent basis for any career dealing at first hand with works of art, such as museum and gallery professionals, art dealers, valuers and auctioneers. It is also a good foundation for those wishing to take up further training in any specialism within art conservation.
