    BA Art History


    Year one

    Year one is a qualifying year, which means that you must pass it, but the results do not count towards your final degree. You gain familiarity with the practices of working at degree level, and gain understanding of the different ways in which historical material can be used.

    Year two

    Part I of the degree is weighted at 40 per cent of the final assessment. You will demonstrate a greater assurance of working at degree level, and direct aspects of your study with some measure of independence. The programme includes a compulsory vacation study module which involves a study trip abroad, accompanied by tutors, to an art centre in Europe. This trip is linked to the writing of a study project and an examination.

    Year three

    Part II of the degree is weighted at 60 per cent of the overall assessment. At the end of year three, you are expected to demonstrate an efficient use of scholarly apparatus, to take initiative in your work and have some independence of judgement. You have the option of taking a dissertation at either 20 or 40 credits, subject to approval by the Department.
