Programme specification:

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

This programme will teach students how to work across fine art media, visualise and contextualise their ideas within a theoretical and historical framework; bringing them to fruition through their own practice and research/writing. The BA Fine Art and History of Art is perfectly positioned to offer such a diverse curriculum, it takes place in the School of Fine Art History of Art and Cultural Studies, home to many internationally renowned experts in both fine art and history of art. Students on the programme will benefit from working with the diversity of students within the school and as we move into the new Geography Building in 2015/16 there will be new spaces where they can work and interact with each other in exciting and productive ways.

This programme will provide students with the knowledge, inspiration, confidence and skills to develop their own practice and critical skills. They will be able to deploy these in a whole range of media and debates in sensitive, informed and imaginative ways. Students will have the opportunity to develop rich portfolios of work to a professional and post-graduate standard. The programme includes modules that locate fine art in historical, cultural, social, political and economic contexts.

The programme seeks to forge and strengthen links with the expanding area cultural industries so, with both the year abroad and industrial placement(s) students will have the opportunity to work in a wide variety of places; not necessary confined to the environments usually or readily associated with the practice of ‘fine art’.
