Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Give depth to your art history studies and colour to your history 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. On this degree you’ll benefit from a wealth of expertise in the School of History and the department of Art History and World Art Studies. You’ll study the most important periods of European history and history of art, as well as exploring 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 of modern art.
