Art History’s popularity is growing as more people visit galleries and museums each year. The College offers a range of Art History topics from introductions to detailed explorations of ideas and images. Some courses examine art from historical perspectives while others concentrate on individual artists or specific well known works. Classes are taught in the College but others, such as Gallery Studies alternate between lectures and visits to museums, galleries and exhibitions.
The Art History department supports all the work going on across the college and feeds into all art practice. It also provides lectures for everyone, from beginners to experts, offering short, long and one-off lectures linked to temporary exhibitions
