Covent Garden Study, 1984 by Helen Frankenthaler (Credit: Kettle's Yard)
Have you ever looked at something and wondered why it looks like that? Do you like visiting museums and galleries and thinking about the objects you see? Are you interested in finding out about the historical, religious, literary and cultural contexts that shaped and changed these objects as they were made, used and admired? Then a degree in History of Art could be for you!
You don’t need to have studied History of Art before. If you are interested in any of the following: history, literature, philosophy, religion, foreign languages (modern and/or ancient), politics, economics, music, science or maths... in fact, if you’re interested in anything, and are visually sensitive, then you have something you can bring to the History of Art.
