BA Programme - Third Arts (2016-17)
The third- or final-arts programme in the History of Art is challenging and rewarding. It is designed to bring your knowledge and skills in the subject to a higher level, building on the foundations laid in the first and second years of study. The core courses focus on broad questions within the discipline:
HA3016 investigates women's art from the Renaissance to the present; HA3015 examines major matters relating to method, theory, and approach in Art History.
The special-subject options — HA3005, HA3006, HA3020, HA3023, HA3024 and HA3027 — offer the freedom to shape your final-year programme to suit your individual interests and to investigate particular issues in the context of a skill-based, small-group learning environment. Buttressing the teaching are study tours and field trips to Berlin, Dublin, London and Rome.
Lastly, the supervised research project, HA3013, will provide the opportunity to undertake a significant piece of writing under the supervision of an art historian from the teaching team.
Four pathways are on offer:
