Art History & Visual Culture
Dr Fabrizio Nevola
Welcome to Art History & Visual Culture at Exeter, and congratulations on gaining an offer of a place to study here! We offer a unique programme, where the past is in dialogue with the present, so that specialised study in any one area is informed by a broad understanding of historical trends. Our modules will equip you with the skills and understanding that underpin high-level engagement with art, architecture and visual culture. Our course includes field trips to local collections, as well as London galleries and a field study module to a European city.
Art History & Visual Culture Subject Chair
Ours is a small tight-knit course that's still developing and each new cohort is able to shape the personality of the degree program. You'll get to know all of the tutors and fellow students really well, and will be offered the amazing opportunity to study art in-situ in Florence closely with these people. The combination of Visual Culture’s new and emerging discourses with traditional Art Historical approaches is what offers a truly interdisciplinary way of understanding ‘Art History’ alongside current culture.

BA Art History & Visual Culture
The course has been extremely varied, with the visual culture side particularly thought provoking and offering chances to explore interesting contemporary subject matter. The field trip to Florence was a particular highlight and fantastic opportunity, we were so lucky as this was funded by the university! I had hoped for the course to be quite a “fresh” take on traditional art history, and it definitely has been. The tutors in particular have been so supportive, and their passion for the subject has made the course more inspiring.
