Art History with Data Science BA (Hons)

The Art History with Data Science BA (Hons) will allow you to study the full range of artistic expression and hone your writing skills. The programme combines cultural surveys with more intense, media-specific subjects including architecture, landscape and painting. Through your Data Science minor, you’ll be able to analyse data to effectively extract useful information.

Courses

In each year of your undergraduate programme, you will study the equivalent of four, 30-credit, courses for your honours degree, plus three non-credit bearing courses for your NCH Diploma.

The courses that run in each academic year are subject to change in line with faculty availability and student demand so there is no guarantee every course will be delivered. For further information, please see here and speak to your admissions contact.
