About

Contemporary culture is highly dependent on visual representations. We are bombarded on a daily basis by advertisements, posters, digital photographs, and other texts. Courses offered in the History of Art, Design and Visual Culture program at tne University of Alberta teach students to understand our visual world and its messages.

Overview

From representations of sex and death in the Renaissance, to performing bodies in contemporary activist art, to China’s design revolution, course topics range widely. 

Learning outcomes

Students explore practices of slow looking, learn how to pose original questions of art works, and engage in creative research projects including faculty/student curatorial projects and pop-up exhibitions in public spaces.Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in the History of Art, Design and Visual Culture at the University of Alberta begin by taking introductory (100- and 200-level courses) designed to equip them with the skills of close visual analysis and an ability both to understand and recognize the visual culture of diverse historical periods. These courses range from the early modern to the modern and contemporary periods. More advanced (300- and 400-level) courses concentrate on specific themes and visual media. At this level, students learn how to produce scholarly essays, undertake original research, present their ideas orally, and engage critically with various art-historical methods.
