Overview

In our contemporary society, with innovative technologies of visual research and communication, the ability to analyse images, art and architecture is more valuable than ever.

You’ll have the choice of a wide range of modules giving you the opportunity to study art by time period, to focus on a specific media, or to pursue a specific methodological perspective. This includes modules that are jointly designed and taught in collaboration with our partners, for example the Tate or the V&A.

The History of Art course programme from University of York caters for generalists with broad interests, and those who are coming to art history from another discipline, however you can also specialise at a later stage of your degree with your module and dissertation topic choice.

We are one of the largest History of Art departments in the UK. We have developed successful partnerships with museums, galleries and country houses which will enrich your studies and may offer you placement opportunities and privileged access to collections.
