About

 The History of Art course from University of Oxford aims to arrive at a historical understanding of the origins, meaning and purpose of art and artefacts from a wide range of world cultures, asking about the circumstances of their making, their makers, the media used, the functions of the images and objects, their critical reception and – not least – their subsequent history.

Overview

Anything designed by human beings exhibits visual qualities that are specific to the place and period in which it originates. As well as educating students in the historical interpretation of art in its cultural contexts, a degree in History of Art provides skills in the critical analysis of objects through the cultivation of visual literacy. The acquired skills have broad applicability in a wide range of professional settings, as well as serving the needs of enduring personal enlightenment.

Careers

The cultural industries are one of the biggest employers in the world. In addition to museums and galleries, there are many governmental and nongovernmental agencies that work to conserve, research and promote cultural heritage and to further the production of art. Furthermore,  History of Art course from University of Oxford  graduates will be especially competitive for posts in any area that requires combinations of visual and verbal skills, such as publishing, advertising, marketing and web-based media, as well as entering the wide range of professions available to all humanities graduates.
