Summary

The Art History programme combines new media technologies with more traditional disciplinary practices to equip you with the professional skills you’ll need to succeed and to shape the cultural and creative industries. Within the course, ethno- and gender-centric art histories are contextualised amongst diverse, non-Western practices with a view to redressing historic imbalances and injustices. From Banksy to Basquiat, from Kusama to Kngwarreye, you are encouraged to find your own place and voice within these fantastically complex visual worlds. The BA in Art History starts by exploring the foundations of contemporary Western culture in classical Greece and Rome and then brings you right up to date via a survey of key art-historical periods, including the Italian and Northern Renaissances and the birth of the concept of the Artist. As well as this grounding in the traditional Western art-historic canon, you will also explore non-Western art histories and current challenges to the linear and historically prevailing accounts of art history. This course actively seeks individuals who want to challenge and shape the future of the discipline of art history; individuals who feel disconnected from the representations that they see in galleries and museums and who want to effect change.

What do I need to join?

112 UCAS Tariff Points, and GCSE Maths & English C/4. You will be required to attend an interview. Mature students over 21 will be required to demonstrate professional/creative experience and evidence of academic ability
