Visual and Art History is a six-course major available to students in the Humanities Faculty studying towards a BA degree. The courses provide an opportunity to study both the history of the fine arts and the history of other key visual traditions and cultures, including architecture, interior and industrial design and dress.

The programme offers courses in the theory and practice of curatorship, developing in students a sophisticated awareness of the practicalities, politics and poetics of working with collections of many kinds.
