Course Summary

This intensive one-year course offers you the opportunity to develop your understanding of the history of art and architecture. You will learn to critically analyse and interpret art objects and buildings, and will engage with the concepts, values and debates that inform the study and practice of the history of art. On this course, you will get the chance to study with internationally recognised experts.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates can pursue careers in the creative arts, media and education. Possible professions include higher education lecturer, museum/gallery curator, or advertising account executive. This degree may also be useful in becoming a community arts worker, multimedia specialist, or higher education lecturer.

Modules

This module will introduce you to the core study skills required for the history of art and architecture. You will learn to analyse painting, architecture, sculpture, photography and contemporary art, and consider key critical and theoretical issues that shape the practice of art history. You will work on applying these ideas, and exploring how they shape and reshape your understanding of the case studies that you will cover in the earlier part of the module. Towards the end of the module, you will progress towards independent study, and will build on the skills you have developed over the first two terms. Supported by workshops, you will develop your own extended essay on a case study of your choosing.
