About the programme

The single-honours degree provides a flexible and broad-ranging approach to the study of art history. It offers opportunities to develop practical skills that you will need for employment, while demanding a high level of intellectual engagement.

In Year 1, you take core courses in art history with additional options from related subjects such as anthropology, cultural studies, English, film studies and history.

In Year 2, you take some core art history courses but also have choices from a range of special periods within the subject. You will continue to combine these with one course from a related subject. In your final year, you specialise in art history and complete two dissertations.
