Course summary

**About This Course**On this degree programme, you’ll learn about the most important periods in the history of European art whilst exploring the arts of other cultures, including art in the ancient world, and contemporary art in India, Asia, Africa and the Americas. You’ll engage with artworks from pre-history right through to the present, and with a wide variety of art forms including painting, sculpture, photography and video art, architecture, and installation and performance art. In your first year, you’ll establish firm foundations for the study of works of art from a variety of traditions. In your second and third years, you’ll select from a range of optional modules focused on particular periods and addressing specific topics and themes that cut across the history of art and history of art institutions. These may include the relationship between modern art and gender, contemporary art history, the role of the gallery and museum, the fascinating world of medieval life, indigenous art, and the politics of art and art display. All this results in a degree with incredible breadth and depth. As well as expanding and deepening your knowledge and understanding of art, you’ll cultivate key intellectual and professional skills including the visual analysis of images, critical thinking, and confident communication. **Overview**You’ll study the history of art in conjunction with an exploration of how art is collected, curated and displayed. You will find out about how art is made, the artists who make it, and its meanings and cultural context, and you’ll explore these themes within the context of its place in public museums and private collections. Alongside key themes in art history, you’ll also study topics central to a career in museums, galleries, and the heritage sector. You’ll examine public engagement with art, exploring the history of museums, the implications of different kinds of display, and the varied practices of curators, conservators and educators. You’ll engage with contemporary debates about the status of art and the role of galleries and museums in the present and going forward into the future. You will explore how museums and galleries work, and consider what is involved in the organisation of successful exhibitions and displays. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
