This diploma will equip you with the knowledge and critical skills to understand the part that art, architecture and design have played in everyday life. You will discover the ways that images, environments and artefacts communicate meaning and value through being looked at and handled in both past and present. You will explore the power of images to influence debates, both historically and in the present day, and develop transferable skills in visual literacy. Key features of the course
- Explore images and artefacts from a broad range of periods and places.
- Become aware of different approaches to studying art, design and material culture.
- Gain skills in visual literacy, criticism and analysis that will make you highly employable.
- Reflect on your own learning with the support of a tutor.
This diploma has two stages, each comprising two modules. You’ll start Stage 1 with a broad introduction to the arts and humanities followed by a module to develop your knowledge and skills. Next, at Stage 2, you’ll focus your study on art history as you explore the shifting themes in art history through various times and places. In the first module you'll develop skills of visual literacy through a cutting edge exploration of different ways of viewing art in both past and present. The second module introduces you to artistic change through time and place, from c.1200 to the present day. Again you'll study art in its broadest definition, including not only painting, sculpture and architecture but also, for example, garden design, the taste for Chinese in interior design and contemporary art display at the Venice Biennale.
