History and History of Art are two complementary subjects that can be studied alongside each other at degree level. If you want to understand the past to prepare for your future in a changing world, studying History is the way forward. Studying History of Art is not just about appreciating the ‘great works’, although a passion for art in all its forms is certainly a huge part of it. It is also about understanding past and present cultures, and the process of human creativity itself.
