Undergraduate History of Art degrees


Why study History of Art at Goldsmiths? 

In the Department of Visual Cultures we explore and produce new forms of art history and theory in a culturally diverse and intellectually challenging environment.

  • Our distinctive focus is on modern and contemporary artistic, visual and spatial practices. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, we look at these practices in an international context and consider the ways in which they engage with urgent social, cultural and political issues.
  • Throughout your art history degree you will explore visual culture within a framework of critical theory, philosophy and cultural studies.
  • Areas of particular interest include cultural difference, performativity, curatorial strategy, the urban environment, aurality, encounters with audiences and the production of subjectivities.
