BA Programme - Third Arts (2017/18)
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 two core courses focus on broad questions within the discipline: HA3016 investigates women's art from the Renaissance to the present, while HA3015 examines major matters relating to method, theory, and approach in Art History.
The special-subject options — HA3005, HA3006, HA3020, HA3023, HA3027 and HA3028 — 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 such cities as 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:
