Course content

The MA in Art History and Curating offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice. Focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the modern period (19th and 20th centuries), the programme addresses key developments in art and art history up to the present day, as well as offering theoretical and practical training in the field of museum studies and curating.

The programme is intended for graduates who have studied Fine Art, Art History or any other Arts and Humanities discipline, or those from non-arts backgrounds wishing to pursue a new subject. It will also appeal to those already working in the museums or galleries sector wishing to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD). There are opportunities to participate in overseas study tours and in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice and New York. Regional exhibition and site visits will also take place.
