Course summary

Our BA History of Art with Film is for those with a passion for both the visual arts and the study of film; it is also ideal if you are interested in a career in the broad area of arts, media and cultural industries. This course covers a wide range of Western and non-Western art, from the Parthenon to performance art, and film history and theory from film's beginnings to the present day.You will develop your understanding of works of visual and film culture in their historical context, enhance your skills of visual perception and critical analysis of texts and of still and moving images, and be introduced to the current approaches to the discipline. You will learn to research the cultural and historical contexts in which art and film has been produced and write confidently and analytically about images, films and texts.While some of our students have studied art history at school or have completed short courses, most have not studied the subject in any depth prior to starting this course. The first-year modules are therefore intended to provide you with academic skills and a good grounding in the discipline. As you progress through the course, you will have opportunities to explore different types of visual culture in more detail. Studying at Birkbeck you are based in the heart of London, close to museums and galleries, while being part of a vibrant and stimulating student community.**HIGHLIGHTS**- Established almost half a century ago, Birkbeck's Department of History of Art is an internationally respected centre for research and teaching.
