The distinctive curriculum allows students to take advantage of the most up-to-date developments in the field, and to understand the interactions and differences between literature and the visual arts in history. Literature is introduced in the first year through a series of seminal works in drama, poetry and narrative which have helped to articulate the literature of England and Europe both past and present. By adopting and practising close reading skills students will develop their abilities in analysis and interpretation, and grow in confidence from the beginning of their undergraduate study. Similarly in the art history modules students will cover a broad history from their first year of study and can choose from a variety of specialist options to suit their own interests. Students will engage with art works that range from Old Master paintings, through the Pre-Raphaelites and Surrealists, to the most up-to-date contemporary art and visual culture. Modules on this course will also explore a wide variety of media, including architecture, urbanism, photography and video, as well as painting, drawing, printmaking, performance art and sculpture.
