The teaching and research of art history at Birkbeck was established almost half a century ago. Today, we are an internationally respected centre in this area.

When you study art history at Birkbeck, you will learn from academics whose expertise ranges from medieval European architecture through to contemporary Latin American Art. We have particular expertise in photography and museums. As well as regular gallery and museum visits, we offer an exciting study trip abroad every Spring.
