Course summary

Are you interested in art, working in galleries and have a passion for film? Our joint honours programme Art History and Film offers a critically engaging and expansive approach to the discipline of art history combined with critical, theoretical and historical study of cinema. Our course provides you with the key visual, critical and professional skills necessary for a career in the art world and for a range of other employment opportunities. As an arts student, you become part of an artistic community based within the School of Arts’ Jarman building – a creative hub for students of art history, film, drama and media studies. In your first year, you are given a firm foundation in some of the aesthetic, interpretative and methodological approaches in art history and film studies. You also receive an introduction to work-related skills directly relevant to employment in the visual arts sector, such as visual arts writing and exhibition curation. Throughout your second and third years, there are opportunities for you to develop and expand your engagement with the discipline through a range of specialist modules. These may include Renaissance and Baroque art, modernism, contemporary art, French painting, surrealism, photography and aesthetics. Within the film element of your degree, you engage with cinema’s rich scope and history, from silent classics and mainstream Hollywood to world cinema and the avant-garde. Our modules cover film theory, history and practice, and topics such as national cinema, animation, fantasy and pulp film.
