Overview

This double degree is for students who wish to combine in-depth study into the historical and theoretical aspects of visual art and culture with an education in the social sciences, social research and policy.

The Art Theory component will provide graduates with an understanding of the history and theories of art, design and media; a strong foundation for critical analysis; and advanced research skills.

Among the aims of the Social Research and Policy degree are to deepen students’ understanding of the social sciences, to develop their capacity to evaluate ideas and policy problems, and to enable them to contribute to enlightened policy-making.
