BA (Hons), Full-time With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
This course allows you to explore the ways in which art has been produced and received by different communities across time and in different places.
You'll learn about the history of art and to think critically about its development and effects, examining the social history of art in a challenging and thought-provoking way. You'll also consider some of the theories and approaches, from aesthetics to anthropology, that can help us to interpret works of art. We do not take for granted that 'art' has been understood in the same way around the world through time.
You'll choose from a wide range of optional modules to focus on topics that suit your own interests. These include studies of ancient Greek art, African sculpture, Japanese photography and Hollywood film, as well as contemporary art practice. You'll benefit from the interdisciplinary research of our School, with modules available in art gallery and heritage studies and the chance to study alongside cultural theorists and practising artists.
Application deadline details:
Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
