Prospective Students

History of Art

History of Art is a lively, stimulating and rigorous course which covers a wide spectrum of art and architecture, from the medieval to modern periods. The aim is to foster a wide and deep understanding of art and architecture, and to help you develop visual literacy and awareness, as well as a range of critical and analytical skills. The course places a high priority on first-hand study of works of art and architecture, both within Cambridge and further afield.

History of Art can lead directly to a career in a museum or art gallery, in fine art dealing, in journalism or publishing, in heritage management, or in teaching and research. Many of our former students are now prominent figures in the art world. The course is also an excellent preparation for a career in other fields that place a premium on visual skills, such as advertising or marketing.
