About

Studying the History and History of Art (Hons) programme at University of Birmingham is a highly complementary pairing, as you investigate past and present cultures - and the process of human creativity itself.

Overview

Whatever your interests - whether cultural, social, military, political, economic or religious history - there is someone at Birmingham teaching your kind of history. Moreover, historians in other departments expand the range of modules on offer, notably in the fields of Byzantine and African history. You will have access to original works, special collections and extensive resources, such as our acclaimed on-campus gallery - the Barber Institute of Fine Arts. Here you will find works by Botticelli, Van Gogh, Monet, Vigée LeBrun, Magritte and Rodin.

Study trips play an important part in your degree and include visits to galleries and museums in the UK and abroad. You will participate in a week-long, University-funded trip to a major European centre of artistic and historic importance, where you have the opportunity to examine works of art and architecture in situ. Previous study trips have been to Rome, Prague, Berlin and Paris and are led by staff with specific research interests in the city.
