About the programme

In this programme you learn to ‘read’ visual images, with the opportunity to compare how art history has been studied with the newer discipline of film. Common to both halves of the degree is the study of the connections between national institutions and identities, and how they are presented in painting, sculpture, architecture, film and visual culture. Film studies looks at visual literacy, film genres and theory across the globe, just as art history looks at cultures outside the western tradition.
