History of Art

History of Art is an inherently interdisciplinary field of academic enquiry that begins with looking closely at images and objects. The stories they tell give us insight in the lives of their makers, viewers and users, as well as the spaces and times in which they are rooted.

In a world powerfully shaped by the visual, a degree in art history provides the skills to understand, critically analyse and intervene in the visual world and its impact on how we think and act.
