The Art History programme has established research strengths in aesthetics, contemporary art, photographic studies, the philosophy of art, art history and in developing teaching approaches to the subject. These interests are reflected in the rich variety of modules we offer our students throughout their time at Kent.
Alongside traditional academic modules, there are also opportunities for practice-based learning and engagement with the visual arts, for example, by taking photographs, writing criticism, curating exhibitions, or by collecting art, on behalf of the department, for our growing and highly distinctive Print Collection. All of these modules provide both a high level of academic engagement with the subject and give you some of the key aptitudes required for future employment in a competitive job market. We also offer a year in industry option.
As one of the most wide-ranging, multi-faceted and interdisciplinary of subjects in the Arts and Humanities, Drama and Theatre naturally lends itself to joint honours study. Students taking any of the joint honours programmes in the subject area will encounter aspects of drama, theatre and performance drawn from a wide range of historical epochs, languages and cultures, and have the opportunity to explore these in theory and practice, bringing their own specialist areas of study into play in both the seminar and the rehearsal room.
