HISTORY OF ART

The History of Art Department at UCL is one of the most dynamic centres for the study of art history and visual cultures in the world. Known for our critical and self-reflexive approach to the subject, we are committed to a wide range of critical and historiographical enquiry, and theoretical rigour is stressed in our programmes at all levels. The problems we address cut across the boundaries of geography, chronology and discipline.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

Our teaching programmes and research move beyond traditional forms of art history to address visual and material cultures more broadly. Teaching stretches from the medieval period to the art of today, and the art of all periods is considered in its global context. It also includes new and non-traditional media and contemporary art.
