Art History

The Art History programme offers degrees at the undergraduate and graduate level. We offer a range of courses that can be grouped according to six themes: art, science and technology; gender, class and society; material culture and object-based analysis; word and image; museums, collecting and cultural policy; and post-colonial analysis. All art history courses emphasize visual literacy and the contextual relevance of the discipline within culture and history.

The programme maintains close ties with the Agnes Etherington Art Centre on campus, which features innovative exhibitions, programs, and high-quality collections encompassing European painting of the Baroque era, with a focus on Dutch and Flemish art; contemporary art; and historical Canadian art, with smaller concentrations of the art of Indigenous peoples of North America, decorative arts, costume and heritage quilts of the region. In addition, the gallery holds a fine collection of the art of West and Central Africa.

Students may also choose to expand their experience of works of art and architecture through study in our international programs, including the Venice Summer School and courses at the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in England.
