On this World Art Studies course at the University of East Anglia you’ll discover the art and architecture of societies and cultures across the globe, from antiquity to today. Throughout the course you’ll enjoy close and imaginative encounters with artworks. You’ll engage critically with art history and cultural theory.
You’ll ask questions such as, how does art connect with wider social, political and cultural forces? What is the role of art in allowing us to discover who we are, how we have been shaped, and what our potentials are, as both individuals and as communities? What are the most rewarding ways to think and write about art?
You’ll choose between four and six optional modules from the range on offer. The modules on offer address a wide variety of topics, and could include topics such as 20th-century UK and American art, Venetian art and architecture, art in the contemporary world, abstraction, Medieval art, the history of portraiture, and introductions to art history, archaeology, anthropology, museum studies, and more. Depending on your choice of modules, you’ll have the chance to go on field trips and be able to study artefacts first-hand.
