A111 will introduce you to the study of the arts and humanities at university level. It is an interdisciplinary module, which presents a broad survey of works of art and literature, people, events, practices and ideas in a period ranging from about three thousand years ago to today. You'll think about the kind of knowledge and understanding that is gained through the study of the arts and humanities and why this matters. The module is structured around three themes: ‘reputations’, ‘traditions’, and ‘crossing boundaries’. A111 is therefore an ideal starting point for further study of art history, which will enable you to develop your academic skills before proceeding to study at higher levels.
