The Art History and Visual Culture program examines the prominence and pervasiveness of art within the wider context of visual culture. The emphasis is on modern society with key threads tracked back through history. While the majority of relevant courses are taught within the Fine Arts department, the program also draws on the expertise of faculty across the university, incorporating courses from over ten departments in the Faculty of Arts and the School of Architecture. Students can choose to major in an honours or a three- or four-year general degree program with a major in Art History and Visual Culture. The minor option ‘Visual Culture in a Global Context’ offers a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of visual culture in society.
As part of the Art History and Visual Culture degree programs, the Fine Arts department regularly offers course trips to several destinations throughout Europe and North America. For more information see Course Trips
