Essex’s Art History course offers a broad foundation in the history of visual culture: both by learning about canonical forms of art and architecture and by discovering what has been overlooked or marginalised, such as medical photography, tattoos or objects from political protests. Students will also develop the skills they need to make exciting new connections between the forms of visual culture you study, developments in other disciplines, and broader social and political forces. Applicants are not required to have an Art History A-Level to apply to this course. For students with a particular interest in pursuing careers in curating and museumship, Essex provides modules every year that explore the histories, theories and practices of museums, exhibitions and galleries, as well as more nuts-and-bolts issues, such as installing and marketing artwork. This course is suitable for those who want to work at museums and galleries, auction houses, education (e.g., in schools, universities and cultural institutions), marketing and advertising, and new media. This degree also prepares students to run their own galleries, to work as specialist arts lawyers and PR agents, and for positions in charities, fashion and publishing.
