History of art

Enrich and extend your knowledge with a part-time course

History of art aims at an historical understanding of the origins of artefacts within world cultures, asking about the circumstances of their making, their makers, the media used, the functions of the images and objects, their critical reception and – not least – their subsequent history. 

The Department has a strong offering in the history of art, which can be studied from short courses (many of which can be studied for credit) up to degree level.
