If you have a degree but little experience in the study of art history, archaeology, and anthropology, this programme will prepare you for postgraduate study in the field. Students choose from the full range of undergraduate modules offered in the School to build a unique programme tailored to their interests.
Candidates for whom English is not their first language are expected to provide evidence of proficiency in written and spoken English. A minimum IELTS overall band score of 6.5 is required with a minimum of 6 in each section.
Why Choose Us?
Art History and World Art Studies is based in Norman Foster’s world-famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, an icon of modern design, which contains an astounding art collection with major internationally-renowned works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Edgar Degas, Jacob Epstein, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso. Students work in close proximity to this collection, “perhaps the greatest resource of its type on any British campus” according to the Times Good University Guide.
- 95% of our History of Art graduates (and 88% of our BA graduates overall) go on to work and/or postgraduate study within 6 months of graduating. We are therefore the highest-rated department in England (and joint first in the UK) for History of Art graduate prospects
- 100% of our History of Art graduates (and 97% of our BA graduates overall) said they thought staff had made the subject interesting. This figure was matched by just one other History of Art department in England
- Almost 90% of our BA graduates said that they had received the advice and support they needed to do well in their studies, a figure exceeded by just two other History of Art departments in the UK. This is probably because – as the survey reveals – our students get more lectures, seminars, tutorials and general contact time with academic staff than students at many other leading History of Art departments in the UK
- 96% of our History of Art graduates said they had been provided with the IT resources they needed for their studies, a figure matched by just one other History of Art department in the UK
- Finally, we scored 100% teaching and overall satisfaction for Anthropology (2015 National Student Survey), continuing our tradition of providing a first-class university education in History of Art as well as Archaeology, Anthropology, and Museum and Gallery Studies.
