The combined History of Art degrees provide the opportunity to choose modules from a wide range of courses in History of Art, English or History.
These courses offer an excellent range of options. If you have a special interest in Renaissance or twentieth-century art you can broaden and deepen your knowledge of that period and its culture by choosing Renaissance or twentieth-century modules in both departments.
A feature of the History of Art combined honours degrees at York is that they are carefully co-ordinated with the English and History departments in order to balance the work-load and timetable, and in order to maximise the opportunities for interdisciplinary study.
In each case, combined course students take Encounters with the Material Object in their first term together with an English or History module, followed by Reinventing Antiquity or Theory together with an English or History module in the second term. For each term thereafter, you are generally free to combine modules in both History of Art and English/History. The final unit is a dissertation on a topic combining History of Art with English/History.
