Description

The MA in Art History draws upon the exciting research and outstanding teaching expertise of the department. Studying art history at postgraduate level will deepen your understanding of art, architecture and visual culture, build your analytical and critical skills, and develop the skills needed for independent study and research. You'll start by exploring the core concepts and recent developments that have shaped art history from Renaissance Italy to the contemporary Caribbean, before building on these foundations to expand your understanding of visual and material objects – incorporating architecture, art and design. You'll complete this degree by researching and writing a dissertation on an agreed topic of your own devising.

Key features of the course

  • Engages critically with key theories and approaches developed to interpret and explain works of art and architecture

  • Examines critical debates both within the academic discipline of art history and in the 'real world' contexts of heritage, curating and museums

  • Prepares and inspires you to confidently develop and articulate your own standpoint within the discipline

  • Concludes with a substantial piece of independent research and a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

Requirements

Entry requirements

You must hold a UK honours degree (or equivalent) preferably with at least a 2:1 classification. Although your degree does not need to be in Art History or a closely related subject, you will need some knowledge of the subject and an understanding of relevant critical approaches, as the MA in Art History assumes all candidates have the knowledge and skills usually acquired by pursuing the subject at undergraduate level.
