History of Art

This programme offers study in an exceptionally wide range of artistic cultures, periods and forms. The flexible structure of the course allows students to choose from seminar modules on the arts of Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and from antiquity to the present day. Teaching takes place in small groups, with regular opportunities for individual supervision. The degree develops critical skills in research, analytical thinking and communication, and prepares students for either a higher research degree or a career in the visual arts sector. As a member of the Sainsbury Institute for Art, the School of Art History and World Art Studies at UEA offers students an extraordinary range of academic resources and researchers.
