In their second year of study the majority of students must take the History of Art 2 course.
History of Art 2 is a two-semester course (HA2A and HA2B) that consists of 2 lectures and 1 seminar per week. Semester 1 examines aspects of the visual arts from c.1700 to the 21st century. Semester 2 examines the visual arts from c.300 to c.1300.
Visiting students who are here for only one semester are permitted to take either semester as an independent course. All other students must take both semesters of this course. Entrants will normally be expected to have a pass in History of Art 1 or the equivalent.
For further information about the second year of study, including details of assessment and weekly lecture information about the History of Art 2 course, please refer to the History of Art year 2 handbook.
For more extensive information about History of Art 2 please see the Handbook for 2012-13.
Students should always ensure they speak to their director of studies before selecting their courses, in order to ensure an appropriate study track throughout the programme.
Single honours MA students must, in addition to History of Art 2, take the course ‘Classical Art 2A: The Development of Greek and Roman Art’ (one semester, 20 credits) and the ‘Architectural History 2B’ course (one semester, 20 credits). They must in further addition take one optional 40-credit course or two optional 20-credit courses.
Joint honours MA students must, in addition to History of Art 2, take 40 credits worth of courses in their other subject area, and 40 credits worth of optional courses.
