Course content

The MA in Art History and Visual Culture programme prepares students for advanced research in the visual arts and an exciting creative career in the art world. This programme focuses on intercultural issues in art history and visual culture, and professional practice in the visual arts, which prepares graduate students for further education and careers in the arts and creative cultural industries.

The programme is taught at our Kensington campus in Central London where our students benefit from studying in close proximity to the Victoria and Albert Museum, Design Museum, Saatchi Gallery, and many more art galleries and institutions located right in the heart of London. The close proximity and ease of access to London’s world class art galleries, museums, libraries and art institutions is vital to the foundation of this course.

This US accredited Master’s programme is a full-time one year programme which brings together theoretical knowledge and practical skills that will equip students with the necessary skills to perform to the best of their abilities in their future employment. An optional internship provides students with hands-on experience in order to enhance their employability. Students can also opt to do this programme part-time over two years which gives them more flexibility to work and study.

London is arguably the hub of the art world. World class art and creative institutions, internationally positioned auction houses, dealers and critics, combine to make-up the unique London art scene. Richmond’s small classes are taught by Professors and engage with London as the intercultural art capital of the world, offering an unparalleled opportunity to students.
