Course content

The MA in Visual Culture fosters close analysis of visual culture across a broad chronological period from the Renaissance to the present day and from a range of theoretical and historical approaches. Students are encouraged to develop a rigourous critical approach that engages with the issues and debates that surround the production, display, and reception of visual culture, and the issues that pertain to the historical study of visual culture as a discipline.

Students complement their studies in art history and visual culture with a module taken in another department, such as History, Geography, and Culture, Film and Media.

Postgraduate teaching draws directly on the current research of staff in the department and reflects an engagement with the latest art historical scholarship. Students are encouraged to develop independent research and critical thinking skills in order to produce original work on topics in their chosen field.
