Course summary

Our BA Language and/with History of Art with International Experience gives you the opportunity to study a modern language - French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish - to a high level of fluency and also learn about the history and culture of your chosen language-speaking area. You can study all kinds of artworks, from painting and sculpture to digital art and installations, and choose from a range of history of art modules, covering artists and art movements from the medieval period through to contemporary art. You will learn how to place artworks within their historical and cultural contexts and how to think more broadly about the role of images within society. You will also study a number of cross-cultural modules, exploring specific themes across a variety of cultures.If you are contemplating a career in the arts, this degree will give you the chance to develop a range of key skills, from critical thinking and writing to effective visual analysis. The third year is usually spent abroad at a partner institution, to allow you to develop your language skills and your knowledge of the culture of the language-speaking area you are studying. You can also apply for a three-year version of the degree without a year abroad, and you can usually transfer to this version of the degree during your first or second year of study if you decide you do not wish to study outside of the UK. This degree is also available for part-time evening study over four years. **Highlights**- You will have the opportunity to spend a year abroad at a partner institution.- You will be studying close to some of the world’s most renowned museums and galleries, including the British Museum and the National Gallery.
