Why study Art History at Warwick?

There are many reasons to choose Warwick for your History of Art course. Here are just a few of them:

The Venice term

An image of Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed ArtiHistory of Art at Warwick is the only course that offers you a whole term's study in the art world's premier city, Venice.

Here the historic meets the contemporary - you can take in Titian and Tintoretto one day, and the world's most recent art at the Venice Biennale the next. Sometimes the art is even more accessible, allowing you to make your own discoveries.

You'll study at Warwick's centre in Venice, taught by our own lecturers, and you'll have all the support you need to make it a term that you will never forget.

Discover the world's art

We are becoming increasingly global in our offering, so you can study art and architecture from across the world; from Europe, the US, South America, China, Africa, and the Islamic world.

Our course gives you the chance to choose the modules you would like to study.

At the heart of culture

Our home city of Coventry is centre stage as UK City of Culture 2021 and as the programme gets well into its stride, the University of Warwick is a big part of it.

The Turner Prize is coming to our Herbert Art Gallery, and there's going to be a lot of excitement around that, too.

Small and perfectly formed

The new Faculty of Arts buildingWe're a small and friendly department, as well as being part of the wider School of Creative Arts, Performance and Visual Cultures, so you'll be part of the most imaginative sector.

We have a beautiful campus where everything you need is in one place, and you can be as active, or as relaxed, as you want to be in your spare time.

Fresh new look

Warwick Arts Centre has had a major refit and is ready to open its doors again, with a fabulous line-up of exhibitions and events for you to get involved with.

The brand new Faculty of Arts building is also set to open later this year, giving the University's creative and cultural arts quarter a further boost, bringing together students to collaborate, innovate and flourish.
