• Students produce three written submissions and prepare for one external examination in the year. The type of writing we focus on is transactional - i.e. not essays as such.

• In class we watch videos, discuss art and culture, read articles and research from both visual and written texts to support opinions.

• Our main topics focus on; What is Art? - What are Originality & Authenticity? - How do specific Media and Processes impact on the style and meaning of artworks? - What is the relationship between Consumerist Theory and/or Feminist Theory and Art?

Future Possibilities
Related Arts fields (e.g. Museum or Gallery management), Tertiary Art History & Art Theory courses which complement degrees in the Humanities, Journalism, Marketing, Tourism, Law and Psychology, Philosophy. Art History at University is consistently regarded as a popular subject.
