Description

This degree course offers you an unusually broad education in the history of art. You will learn about the history of European and North American art and architecture, from classical antiquity, medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and modern periods, right through to contemporary art, whilst also studying aspects of non-Western art, such as the arts of Indian, African, South American and Pacific cultures.

Throughout this course you will be encouraged to engage closely with works of art and architecture in many historical and geographical contexts. You will be able to choose modules from the variety offered within Art History and World Art Studies.
In every module you will be taught to look closely at art and to think creatively and rigorously about its possible meanings. You will also be encouraged to think about art as a transcultural and trans-historical phenomenon, connecting different periods and different places.

You will have many opportunities to study works of art and artefacts first-hand; we are extremely fortunate to be housed in the world renowned Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts based on the UEA campus. You may also wish to take part in the ERASMUS exchange programme studying at a European university, such as Pisa or Berlin for one semester of your second year.

Course Structure

You will study various core modules in the first and second years, developing your understanding of the history of art, related key terms, and current debates. These modules will also cover related disciplines such as archaeology and anthropology.
Much of your learning programme will be made up of optional modules which will enable you to explore both new and familiar areas of art history. This includes the study of medieval and Renaissance art, and twentieth-century modernism, as well as the arts of Asia, Africa, South America and the Pacific.
