The Department of History of Art at York is an internationally recognised centre for study and research. We offer world-class expertise in the visual arts, architecture and art theory.
The department is one of the largest and most dynamic communities of art historians in the UK. We have more than twenty permanent members of staff who teach and research topics that range from the medieval period to the present. Each year we host visiting professors and scholars from around the world who contribute to our exciting teaching and research programme at York.
In the Times Higher Education's ranking of the Research Excellence Framework 2014 we were placed third among History of Art departments and first for History of Art Research Impact.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students enjoy an extremely rich variety of choices and specialisations. Students also benefit from our famously friendly atmosphere, small-group teaching methods, regular study trips and spectacular historic location.
