Course content

The Department of History of Art offers a broad-based Master's programme, which allows you to study a range of periods and approaches, before specialising for your dissertation. The MA draws on the research strengths of all members of the department, which includes specialists in medieval, renaissance and modern art.

We aim to help you develop an informed understanding of the main strands of art history, as practised in Europe and North America. We also offer curatorial units in collaboration with external museum partners, through which you will learn to research and catalogue museum collections and to mount exhibitions.

Our students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds. Some have undergraduate degrees in art history, others do not, and some are working artists. Studying for the MA is a chance to become part of a thriving academic community, with a sizeable and close-knit student body and a lively programme of research and social events.
