About History of Art and Architecture, BA (Hons) - at Trinity College Dublin

History of art and architecture cannot be studied as a single subject. It must be combined with one other subject within the two-subject moderatorship (TSM) programme. This is a joint honors programme; both subjects are studied for three years and one subject only is studied in the fourth year.

Is this the right course for me?

History of art and architecture is designed to appeal to a wide range of students, as well as those with special interests in art, archaeology and history. It will provide you with an effective way of developing intellectual rigour and of acquiring the critical and communication skills traditionally associated with an arts degree. You do not need any previous knowledge of art history or any practical skill in art to do this course.

Course content

This course teaches you how to analyse works of art and how to understand their historical significance. It will enable you to develop an awareness of the environment while also providing you with a deeper sensitivity to the culture and ideals of other nations.

The department provides a broad range of courses covering the history of painting, sculpture and architecture from ancient Greece to modern times. It offers you opportunities to study topics such as early Irish art, the painters of the Italian Renaissance, the great gothic cathedrals of Europe, the architectural splendours of the Georgian era and the artistic achievements of the twentieth century. There are also courses on non-Western art such as Japanese painting.

Trinity offers excellent facilities for the study of history of art and architecture and, in fact, its own distinguished buildings and collections are integral to the course. The National Gallery and National Museum are located nearby and provide the venue for group and teaching activities. Thorough use is also made of other institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Chester Beatty Library. As a student, you will be expected to become closely conversant with various collections and buildings in Dublin.
