Course content

The MA in the History of Art at Warwick is a one year, full-time (or two years, part-time) taught course, offering an unparalleled introduction at postgraduate level to the art and culture of Venice. Based in Warwick's premises in Venice, the Palazzo Papafava, in the autumn term, and then on the Warwick campus, with trips to key national museums, the MA provides a unique opportunity for studying works of art in situ. As well as engaging with Venetian art in itself, the course uses the example of Venice to interrogate some of the broader issues in Art History today: aesthetics and perception; cultural interaction and the arts; the spatial contexts of art; architecture and urbanism; and the arts within a global society.

The course begins with a pre-sessional induction and introduction to the course. This takes place from mid-September, in the two weeks before the beginning of the autumn term, and allows students to get to know the department and the university before leaving for Venice. Students will be required to meet the costs of accommodation, if needed, during the introductory programme, as well as the cost of flights to and from, and accommodation in, Venice during the autumn term.
