The BA in History of Art covers a wide spectrum of art and architecture, from the medieval to the modern period, placing special emphasis on the first-hand study of works of art. It offers a springboard into careers in museums and galleries, heritage management, fine art dealing, publishing, advertising and the visual media. Lucy Cavendish has a small but supportive community of Art Historians, comprising around five Bachelors, Masters, and PhD students.
