Art History provides a first-class rounded education and excellent intellectual training. While the primary focus is on the visual arts, the subject also touches on many other traditional humanities disciplines such as literature, history, religion, languages, classics, psychology and philosophy, with which it provides natural subject combinations. Students acquire skills of critical and historical analysis and the ability to evaluate evidence and present arguments fluently, both orally and in writing.
The Art History with French programme enables you to study French at level appropriate to your existing knowledge. This provides a preparation for working in an international context to complement the graduate skills developed in the Art History Major. Students without GCSE French or equivalent can take a term of intensive French in September before starting their Art History with French programme in January.
Buckinghams 4-term year means that you can complete a normal 3-year BA honours degree in 2 years or combine with an MA or MBA in 3 years. Art History students can opt to start either in September or January.
