Study in a department with a world-class art collection on its doorstep. The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA) hosts major exhibitions and has a dedicated art and archaeology library, making UEA the ideal place for you to begin your career as an art historian. If you understand the importance of the visual arts, and art historical work, to human society and want to engage with artistic and cultural heritage on another continent, this course is right for you. You might wish to use your passion for art to start a career in museums and galleries, in journalism, conservation or arts administration. Or you might be thinking of putting your strong academic abilities and experience of life in another culture to use in teaching, business, the commercial art world or law. Our exceptionally wide range of staff research specialisms ensures that our modules always address the most up-to-date art historical issues and approaches. Our relationship with the SCVA means you’ll also have many opportunities to study works of art and artefacts in person. Through close reading, discussions and object handling, you’ll learn to challenge assumptions and preconceptions about different kinds of art. We encourage critical thought, analysis and debate through lectures and group seminars. In addition, writing a dissertation is a chance to focus in on a specialist subject area and to develop as an independent scholar, and you’ll be supported throughout by a member of the faculty. You’ll cement your skills of academic enquiry, research and writing – abilities you will take with you into your chosen career, or to postgraduate study. Our degree is known for offering an especially broad range of study. In every module, you’ll be encouraged to think about art as a transcultural and trans-historical phenomenon, connecting different periods and places. You’ll become familiar with the essential topics of museum and gallery studies, ideas around the function of the art object, and the production of art in the contemporary world, and have the chance to cover related disciplines.
With a wonderfully diverse range of courses and superb extra-curricular clubs and societies run by one of the most dynamic student unions in the country, UEA is a great place to both live and learn. Located in the beautiful city of Norwich it becomes no wonder UEA is consistently one of the best universities for student satisfaction.
