Discover art and visual culture through a broad range of perspectives.

With access to original works, a dedicated fine art library and collection of resources in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, our acclaimed public gallery, you will find an enthralling collection of European art and works by artists such as Botticelli, Van Gogh, Monet, Magritte, Degas, LeBrun and Rodin. This will allow you to explore an array of perspectives including social history, global art, philosophy, anthropology, feminism and religion. You will also participate in a week-long, University-funded trip to a major European centre of artistic importance, where you will have the fantastic opportunity to examine works of art and architecture in situ.
