About the course
Learn about why art history matters to society, to culture and to politics. You'll find out about art’s relationships with museums and heritage, as well as its place in feminism and queer studies, empire and post-colonialism, criticism and the media.
At Sussex, you benefit from Brighton’s creative arts culture while enjoying access to London’s world-leading resources. You'll explore every aspect of visual and material culture, from photography to architecture to fashion, collaborating with renowned curators and our partners within the industry. We have fantastic facilities including a state-of-the-art conservation centre at The Keep and the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts. We also have exceptional links with galleries and museums including Tate Modern and the V&A.
With our Art History BA, you develop analytic and practical skills that prepare you for work in the cultural, creative and academic sectors.
Sussex graduates change the world. Our students become the leaders of the future, making discoveries, improving lives and changing things for the better.
Study with us to join a welcoming and inspiring community of staff and students from more than 140 countries.
We shape the world from a fantastic campus on the UK’s beautiful south coast.
We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, so you can step off campus to explore the hills and woodlands of the South Downs. The vibrant, colourful and creative seaside city of Brighton & Hove is just nine minutes away.
With Brighton voted the happiest city in England for students, (Student Living Survey, Sodexo, 2018) there can be few better places to study.
