Module aims

In this intensive Summer Term module, you will study a discrete art historical topic in a sustained and cumulative way, through a combination of lectures, seminars and field trips. Under the expert guidance of an academic specialist, you will build upon the skills and techniques you developed in the Autumn and Spring Terms to develop a multi-faceted, rich understanding of a single topic, explored from various perspectives. Where most of the modules in Stage 1 develop broad art-historical knowledge and skills that enable you to progress to further study, Objects in Focus directly introduces you to the more in-depth nature of the modules at Stages two and three, which increasingly focus on specific topics so as to deepen your levels of knowledge and understanding.

Module learning outcomes

At the end of the course students should have acquired:

  • A detailed knowledge of a clearly defined art historical subject
  • A knowledge of its literature
  • Experience of the diverse and multifaceted nature of art historical enquiry
