About our Undergraduate courses


The History of Art and Film department at the University of Leicester is internationally renowned for our high standards of research and teaching. All of our lecturers regularly publish books and papers on their specialist subjects, and our teaching methods mean that you will be taught in a mixture of lectures and small seminar groups, almost always under a dozen.

Our range of degrees allow you to study the history of art from the medieval period to the present. We have experts from across the field, with many decades of teaching experience. Our Film Studies lecturers have particular expertise in US and British film and television.

You will have lots of opportunity to hear from and meet with those in the field, to enhance and build your career prospects. We offer a specialist module in Film Journalism taught by a film journalist.

You can choose the course that suits you. You may choose to study the History of Art separately, combine it with Film Studies or English. Or study Film Studies on its own or combined with other subjects.

History of Art students in their second year will have a unique opportunity to study in Rome, Siena and Florence, with a specialist lecturer on hand to help guide you through your studies. History of Art students can also apply to spend a third year studying abroad through the European Erasmus Scheme.
