What will I learn?

During this four-year degree programme, undergraduates will read both Art History and English literature, benefiting from the expertise and resources of both the School of Humanities (SoH) and the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM).

For English Literature, students will focus both on traditional historical periods and on contemporary innovative approaches to the subject. Specialisations offered include All the major literary periods, Singaporean and Asian literatures, critical and literary theory, cultural studies, film studies, drama, postmodernism, and gender studies.

The Art History curriculum aims to equip students with a thorough knowledge and critical awareness of the global histories of art, culture and heritage, which will be taught through lectures, seminars and practical projects. Students will be trained in the rigours and methods of researching and writing about art, including specialisations in Global Art History, Asian Art History, Museums, Heritage, Curating and Contemporary Art and Theory. They will also benefit from ADM’s relationship to professional arts spaces such as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA).

Graduates from this programme will be suitable employees in both the public and private sectors in Singapore, and the global employment market. They’ll also be well positioned for post-graduate studies.

One possible career option is Archivists, controlling the preservation and organization of a museum's collection by storing valuable documents and cataloging a museum's records.
