The History of Art Department was ranked fourth in the UK in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework for the proportion of world-leading research activity (4*) in the department. With expertise spanning the medieval to the contemporary, our teaching and research supervision is significantly influenced by the research success of our academic staff.
Our collaboration with Waddesdon Manor provides students with the opportunity to work closely with items from their extensive collection. First year students learn how to look, how to interpret what they see and gain an understanding of the relationship between art and its historical and physical contexts.
