Art History and Visual Culture
The BA Art History and Visual Culture provides an excellent grounding in both traditional fine arts and contemporary visual forms. Through the flexible structure of the degree, you can study painting, sculpture, illustration and architecture alongside film, video, performance, and digital art.
From 2013, Visual Culture may be studied alongside Drama, English, Modern Languages, or History as a Combined Honours degree. In these programmes Visual Culture modules make up half of the credits, with half taken in the other subject. Art History may also be combined with other subjects using the Flexible Combined Honours programme.
Our diverse research specialisms include historic and contemporary arts practices, museology and curatorship, art and technology, photography, performance, popular culture, visual representations of ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and visual cultures from the classical era to the present.
