Join us on Thursday 26 January 2023, from 6-7pm (UK time) for a virtual open event for the Undergraduate Certificate in the History of Art. This will give you the chance to meet the course director, discover more about the programme and have your questions answered.

Our two-year, part-time Undergraduate Certificate in the History of Art is taught at first-year undergraduate level and offers an excellent introduction for students who want to develop their knowledge of art through structured study.

The first year will introduce students to key art historical methods of looking and thinking. Students will explore a wide range of artistic materials and their meaning and develop the critical vocabulary and analytical tools necessary to gain a deeper understanding of art and material culture. The second year provides a survey of Western art history in its global contexts, considering the fine arts in relation to wider forms of visual and material culture, from Renaissance altarpieces to documentary photography and from medieval artefacts to abstract art.
