History of Art BA
The History of Art BA is designed to develop your appreciation for art by revealing the details of its history and placing it in its historical context. You will explore art as a reflection of its historical context – a window into the past. You will learn about the changing modes and fashions of art that have developed since classical antiquity and the various artists, sculptors and architects that have pioneered change in their fields. You will also develop your ability to discuss and critique art in a professional manner that takes into account the essential texts surrounding the history of art. You will gain an excellent ‘object-based’ understanding of how to interpret and decode visual imagery, iconography and styles. And, finally, you will be introduced to the many career applications of a history of art degree.
You will critically examine and debate key themes and study areas such as:
The role of art in society
The effect of art upon human emotion, psychology and behaviour
The relationship between the written word and the visual image
The desire for artists to innovate and be new, versus the pull of tradition and precedent
The nature of creativity and the notion of artistic 'genius'
Experience is as much a part of this course as academic discussion. You will have the opportunity to take part in a subsidised, three-week study tour of Italy. The trip will include Rome, Siena and Florence - all of which are home to the finest examples of Renaissance art, sculpture, and architecture. This trip will be with a specialist lecturer who is on hand to guide you through your studies.
