This degree gives you the opportunity to combine the study of images with the analysis of words, providing you with the historical knowledge and intellectual skills needed to understand both at an advanced level.
Invigorating and challenging, this degree programme benefits from the Faculty´s combined expertise in Art History and World Art Studies and Literature, Drama and Creative Writing. Intense reading of literary texts is combined with close, first-hand study of art and architecture, allowing you to expand your knowledge of these two central forms of human culture and develop you capacity for visual and verbal analysis.
You will explore the two disciplines in parallel, taking modules provided by both areas of study throughout your degree. Because of our flexible approach, you have the opportunity to focus on a particular discipline during the second and third year if you wish. Moreover, seminar modules offered will help you to understand the changing relationship between art and literature.
