Autumn Courses

On campus

Our Autumn courses go considerably beyond introductory surveys. Organised thematically, they provide a solid basis for further studies of areas of Western art from classical antiquity to the twentieth century. We teach in small groups to facilitate discussion. The teaching day generally lasts from 10:00 to 16:30, with registration from 09:30 on the first day.

Our Making Sense of courses familiarise students with fundamental aspects of the visual arts and of art history and its methodologies.

Media, Materials and Methods foregrounds aspects of the practice of artmaking while also situating them in the historical contexts of patronage and reception.

Autumn on campus courses include:

  • Classroom sessions alongside visits to museums, galleries, print rooms or other sites where applicable
  • Refreshments (where students are on campus)
  • Extensive course materials on the VLE, and reference access to the Library during course delivery and in the nearest vacation
