Fine Arts I: Medieval to Baroque

ARTH208 (3sh credits) | offered Academic Year

An introduction to some of the branches of Western art and music from the Middle Ages through to the Baroque. The two disciplines are studied chronologically and in parallel, with the aim of stimulating an interest in and appreciation of the creative arts whilst placing them in their historical contexts. Guided field trips give students the opportunity to encounter tailor-made lectures at the National Gallery; experience a well-known opera at the English National Opera; and attend evensong at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, a London West End musical, and a Classical Spectacular concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
