Undergraduate Study in Art History, Curating and Visual Studies

Discover art and visual culture through a broad range of perspectives, such as social history, global art, philosophy, anthropology, feminism and religion. You will have access to original works, a dedicated fine art library and collection of resources in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, our acclaimed public gallery. Here you will find a great collection of European art and works by artists such as Botticelli, Van Gogh, Monet, Magritte, Degas, LeBrun and Rodin. You will participate in a week-long, University-funded trip to a major European centre of artistic importance, where you have the opportunity to examine works of art and architecture.


I did a module on Early Renaissance Italy in second year and one of my final year classes was on the depiction and interpretation of animals in Art History. I love how passionate the tutors are about their research areas.
