This is a combined honours course, where you study History alongside History of Art. Our History course makes the past come alive with high quality teaching by world class historians. Research-active tutors will enable you to critically appreciate the dynamics of change and stability, and apply your understanding to the histories of Britain, Europe and beyond. The historical setting of Oxford also provides a wealth of excellent resources and inspiration for academic study. Our History of Art course enables you to combine the study of artistic creativity with a wide range of academic skills. You acquire a broad knowledge of Western art between the 15th and 20th centuries as well as more detailed knowledge of specific periods. Oxford has outstanding resources in its museums and galleries, including the Ashmolean Museum and Christ Church Picture Gallery. Final-year students also have access to the world-renowned Bodleian Library and the history-of-art-focused Sackler Library. Tutors are active researchers with strong reputations and are regularly involved with major exhibitions.
