About This Course
Give depth to your art historical studies and colour to your historical studies by combining the two disciplines. You’ll study the past in all its complexity and richness, engaging not only with textual sources but also with the art and material culture of different historical periods. This will give you a uniquely nuanced grasp of how people lived, collaborated, created and competed in the past.
On this degree you’ll benefit from the wealth of expertise in the department of Art History and World Art Studies and the School of History. You’ll study the most important periods of European history and the history of art, and will explore the arts and history of other cultures. You might, for example, study the medieval period through documents such as the Magna Carta and monuments such as the great Gothic cathedrals, or learn about the British Empire alongside London’s Great Exhibition in which it was celebrated. Or you could explore the 20th century through the interwoven histories of modern conflicts and modern art.
You’ll be equipped with key skills in imaginative understanding, critical thinking, and confident communication. You’ll expand and deepen your understanding of texts and artworks from a uniquely wide array of contexts while developing your intellectual and professional skills and studying with outstanding students and academics.
You’ll establish firm foundations in the related disciplines of history and art history, engaging with different documents and sources. At the same time you’ll encounter works of art at first hand in the collections of the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which includes works of modern European art and also outstanding works from Africa, Asia and the Americas.
In your second and third years you’ll select from a range of optional modules in order to pursue your own interests in more depth. These modules are focused on particular periods and address specific topics.
As you progress through the course, you’ll be encouraged to engage with different methods and approaches and to develop informed views of your own. You will consolidate your independence as a scholar through the completion of a research dissertation in your final year.
