**Overview**

At UEA, we believe everyone should have the chance to study at degree level. If you have a passion for your subject, but for whatever reason you don’t yet have the grades required for the three-year programme, our Art History with a Foundation Year is a great choice. You’ll undertake an intensive and exciting year of study, focusing on subjects that interest you, while also developing key study skills. We offer a rigorous but supportive teaching and learning experience that is also very rewarding.

When you successfully complete your Foundation Year, you’ll be perfectly placed to move onto your BA History of Art degree or request to transfer onto one of the other undergraduate courses offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

**About This Course**

You’ll study with dedicated lecturers from UEA’s Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, exploring a wide range of academic subjects including Literature, History, Philosophy, Film, Television and Media, American Studies, Politics and the History of Art.

As well as gaining a sound theoretical basis for your continuing studies, you’ll discover new subjects and topics throughout your Foundation Year. You’ll be actively encouraged to develop your own scholarly interests and ideas so you can move onto the degree that’s the best fit for you.

We'll provide you with an accessible, but challenging environment in which you can cultivate your study skills, gaining essential knowledge of many of the concepts, methods and techniques you will need in order to succeed on your future degree pathway, whether that is in Art History or another Humanities discipline. We'll engage with you closely to support you as you work towards your own individual learning goals.

History is a very popular subject (although numbers have fallen of late) — in 2015, over 10,000 UK students graduated in a history-related course. Obviously, there aren't 11,000 jobs as historians available every year, but history is a good, flexible degree that allows graduates to go into a wide range of different jobs, and consequently history graduates have an unemployment rate comparable to the national graduate average. Many — probably most — jobs for graduates don't ask for a particular degree to go into them and history graduates are well set to take advantage. That's why so many go into jobs in the finance industry, human resources, marketing, PR and events management, as well as the more obvious roles in education, welfare and the arts. Around one in five history graduates went into further study last year. History and teaching were the most popular further study subjects for history graduates, but law, journalism, and politics were also popular postgraduate courses.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
