Programme specification:

Students must study a total of 120 credits per academic year.

History of Art students are introduced to various ways in which art has been produced and received by different communities during the last two thousand years. The term 'art' has not always been used in the same way, nor to name the same kinds of works or artefacts, so a variety of subjects may be studied from ancient Greek art and early Christian art to Hollywood movies and modern architecture.

Art historians are interested as much in attitudes as in objects. Although art history is a relatively young discipline, it has wide effects on the making, marketing and exhibition of past and present art.

This course not only teaches the history of art but also invites students to consider critically its development and effects.
