In your first year, you are given a firm foundation in some of the
aesthetic, interpretative and methodological approaches to the
discipline of art history. Throughout your second and third years, there are opportunities for you to develop and expand your engagement with
the discipline through a range of specialist modules.
As well as options that explore Renaissance and Baroque art, modernism, contemporary art, French painting, surrealism, photography and aesthetics, this programme also offers an introduction to work-related skills directly relevant to employment in the visual arts sector, such as visual arts writing and exhibition curation.
The Hispanic studies element of this programme enables you to study a wide range of texts and visual material while learning a language. Optionally, you can focus your studies by choosing options which most relate to Hispanic art and culture.
You have the opportunity to spend a year studying or working in Spain, where you can improve your language skills and experience art forms and culture first-hand. With the option of a dissertation in the final year, you may choose to focus on both art history and Hispanic studies by writing about art forms observed during the year abroad.
