Detailed Description

The origins of our current Faculty lie in Brighton School of Art, established on 17 January 1859. The school was re-designated as the Brighton College of Arts and Crafts in 1947, gaining a reputation as one of the top art schools in Britain.

Following a long period of controversy and debate, the new Grand Parade building was opened in three phases during the period 1961 – 1969. A portfolio of specialist (and sometimes pioneering) courses in art and design was developed at undergraduate and postgraduate levels during the 1970s.

As part of a drive to increase research activity, research assistants were appointed in a range of subjects and the first doctorates in practice-centred research were awarded. In 1976 a Department of Art History was established, and the Department of Humanities became part of the faculty in 1986, adopting the disciplines of media, language and literature in 2009.
