Which course is for me?

Depending on your interests and career plans, you can choose one of six courses. Each constitutes a particular pathway but also offers flexibility, allowing you to select from many optional modules.

Here you will find a brief introduction to all of our undergraduate courses to help you to choose which one best suits you and your aspirations. You can then find out more about each one on the relevant course page.

BA Fine Art

If you would like to focus on studio practice, supported by core modules in professional practice, while also taking modules that help you reflect on the history and theory of art and culture, choose BA Fine Art.

BA History of Art

If you would like to concentrate on the history and theory of art, and want a flexible choice of optional modules, choose BA History of Art.

BA Fine Art with History of Art

If you would like to combine your studio practice with studying the history and theory of art, and would like to be able to do additional optional modules instead of Professional Practice, choose BA Fine Art with History of Art.

BA Cultural and Media Studies

If you want to develop your critical understanding of the history and theory of culture and the media and want to study across disciplines (bringing together, for example, an interest in literature with history and sociology or a passion for philosophy with knowledge about film, music and popular culture) then choose BA Cultural and Media Studies.

BA Fine Art with Contemporary Cultural Theory

If you would like to combine your studio practice with a critical understanding of contemporary culture and the media and would like to be able to do additional optional modules instead of Professional Practice, then choose BA Fine Art with Contemporary Cultural Theory.

BA History of Art with Cultural Studies
