University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
For most students on this joint honours course, history is an existing passion, and history of art provides an additional way to explore the subject. Art has an important place in history, in power and protest, status and symbolism. Visual culture surrounds us, from art galleries to advertising. History In history you will already have your favourite subjects, perhaps the Tudors, civil rights, or the Second World War. You may deepen your knowledge of these topics, but also discover new ones. You can explore many aspects of the past, from 500 CE to the present, examining a range of countries around the world. You will build on your existing research, writing and debating skills. History of Art You will think about the meaning of art and its place in society from the Renaissance to the present day. You will study a wide-range of visual arts including:
- graphic arts
- other visual media
You will take 120 credits of modules per year. In year one, in history, you will focus on thinking about the nature of history as a discipline and developing the skills required for the researching, writing and debating. In history of art you will examine key developments, methods and terms. You will also develop skills in the first-hand analysis of buildings and artworks. You can choose 40 credits from a range of history, American and Canadian Studies, and Culture, Film and Media modules. In year two you will choose 60 credits from a range of History of Art modules. This will be balanced by either 40 or 60 credits of history modules from a wide range of periods of human history and themes. You may take up to 20 credits from complimentary subjects American and Canadian Studies or Film and Television Studies. In year three you will take a Special Subject history module, which focuses on a specialised area of history and develops your analysis of primary sources. You will also take 80 credits from a wide range of optional modules. Most students write an Art History 20 or 40 credit dissertation with the remainder of the modules chosen from further options in History of Art, history, American and Canadian Studies, and Film and Television studies Placement and volunteering opportunities are available in the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies and the School of Humanities, as well as via the Nottingham Advantage Award. You can also spend time overseas through the University of Nottingham Study Abroad programme.
