Course description

UEA has consistently been rated as one of the best universities for student satisfaction and experience, in surveys including the Times Higher Education, and the National Student Survey. Our students have voted for us on the strength of our high quality lectures, fantastic facilities, and our welcoming social environment on campus. We have invested in the things that matter to our students - IT facilities including a 24 hour Library, a network of Student 'hubs' for academic support, and a Careers Service offering internships and mentoring, encouraging student enterprise. With a huge range of clubs and societies, a Students' Union with an excellent reputation for live music, £30 million Sportspark, and an art gallery on campus, we think UEA offers an amazing student experience, and so do our students.

Modules

Year 1: the 1st year is designed to lay the foundations of an understanding of key terms and debates in the analysis of visual and material culture; a lecture series and foundational classes on materials, processes of making, makers and interpretation is complemented by seminars on particular cultures and periods. Year 2: a range of optional modules in the 2nd year allows students to develop their interests within the context of specific geographical and historical settings, with core lecture programmes on visual display and the methodologies of art historical analysis. Year 3: a core lecture series in the final year addresses the issues raised by the study of world art; this wide-ranging review is complemented by seminar modules of special study and a dissertation which introduces students to advanced levels of academic enquiry and research.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
History is a very popular subject – in 2012, nearly 11,000 UK students graduated in a history-related course. Obviously, there aren't 11,000 jobs as historians available every year, but history is a good, flexible degree that allows graduates to go into a wide range of different jobs. Consequently, history graduates have an unemployment rate comparable to the national graduate average. Many – probably most – jobs for graduates don't ask for a particular degree to go into them and history graduates are well set to take advantage. That's why so many go into jobs in the finance industry, management and sales and marketing. Around one in five history graduates went into further study last year – only law saw more graduates continue on to study. History and teaching were the most popular further study subjects for history graduates, but law, journalism, politics and museum studies were also popular postgraduate courses.
