BA (Hons) Art History
Discover why art from the past still matters to our modern society. The Tate galleries attract more than seven million visitors each year, and a Leonardo exhibition sells out as quickly as a music concert. You’ll investigate all aspects of visual culture, from paintings and sculpture to film and photography. Our connections with high profile, international art institutions will immerse you in the intriguing world of art, past and present, and prepare you for a career in this fascinating field.
You could get prepared for your future career by participating in an internship. You could gain experience in museum studies with our museum fieldwork classes, get inspired by regular visits to major UK galleries and museums, including the National Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate St Ives, Peninsula Art Gallery and Plymouth City Museum, and also expand your horizons with our international field trip module. Past destinations have included Rome, Vienna, Paris, Florence and New York City.
