Summary

About Lay the foundations for successful postgraduate study of art history and its related topics with this graduate diploma.

This course is ideal if you don’t yet have a grounding in art and material culture, but are passionate about the subject and aspire to postgraduate study in the field.

You’ll study art history and related topics, choosing optional modules related to your interests and ambitions. You’ll be able to choose from the full range of undergraduate modules offered in Art History and World Art Studies (including those involving archaeological or anthropological approaches to art). In this way you’ll find your own pathway through this rich and fascinating field.

Overview

On this course you’ll discover the art and architecture of societies and cultures across the globe, from antiquity to today.

Throughout the course you’ll enjoy close and imaginative encounters with artworks. You’ll engage critically with art history and cultural theory.

You’ll ask questions such as, how does art connect with wider social, political and cultural forces? What is the role of art in allowing us to discover who we are, how we have been shaped, and what our potentials are, as both individuals and as communities? What are the most rewarding ways to think and write about art?

You’ll choose between four and six optional modules from the range on offer. The modules on offer address a wide variety of topics, and could include topics such as 20th-century UK and American art, Venetian art and architecture, art in the contemporary world, abstraction, Medieval art, the history of portraiture, and introductions to art history, archaeology, anthropology, museum studies, and more. Depending on your choice of modules, you’ll have the chance to go on field trips and be able to study artefacts first-hand.

You’ll develop crucial skills in imaginative looking, critical thinking, robust writing and fluent, confident communication.

You’ll also have the opportunity to study the world-famous collection of art held in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, itself a celebrated icon of modern museum architecture.

You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to study art history at MA level and beyond.
