Explore the way in which the visual and literary arts have represented and engaged with society over time, and the ways in which they are evolving and influencing our world. Examine the tradition of European and North American art and visual culture, from the Renaissance to the present. You will also study the written word from medieval to modern times, investigating issues ranging from the literary culture of Chaucer to the interrelation of literature and digital technology.
First-year modules cover a broad base of the subject and are designed to introduce you to ways of studying at university. By the final year the modules you take will become more specialised and reflect the research expertise of the academic staff. More detailed module information can be found on the 'Course detail' tab on the University of Birmingham's coursefinder web pages.
