About University of Birmingham,...
A key part of the School is the study of modern languages, including Arabic, French, German, Spanish and other Hispanic languages, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, and Russian. We are also home to one of the UK’s largest groups of internationally renowned researchers in the national cultures of Europe - past and present.
The School incorporates the Department of History of Art, which is located in the renowned Barber Institute of Fine Arts. This houses the Barber Institute gallery - an excellent and representative collection of post-medieval European art that is a valuable and convenient teaching resource for all members to use on a regular basis.
The School also includes the Department of Music, one of the largest music departments in the country, with a history stretching back to 1905. Its research community includes internationally recognised scholars, composers and performers.
The department is situated in the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, with its concert hall used for teaching, rehearsal and performance.
