Our art history programme is growing. We have expanded our architecture provision and our focus beyond western art to include Islamic art, Japanese art and the art of the Near East.
There are courses on curation for aspiring practitioners and a host of other art history courses on subjects as diverse as the history of fashion, comic books, urban art and artists' books that can be taken alone, or to complement surveys of periods. You can also study the history of photography, design, video and sound art. Any questions? Contact our visual arts team on 020 7492 2700 Monday - Friday between 10am - 5pm.
