Recent postgraduates in Art History are employed in universities and archives, museums and galleries, auction houses, radio stations, publishing houses and magazines.

Modules

The modules in this programme have varying methods of delivery and assessment. For more details of each module, including weekly contact hours, teaching methods and assessment, please see the latest module catalogue which is for the 2018–2019 academic year; some elements may be subject to change for 2019 entry.

Compulsory

  • Themes in Art History: introduces students to a selection of key issues, concepts, and writings in the field.
Optional

Art History students choose three postgraduate-level course modules, with the option of one of those modules being selected from the undergraduate-level Honours programme. Optional modules are subject to change each year, and some may only allow limited numbers of students (see the University's position on curriculum development).

  • Art and Technology
  • The Book as Object and Idea
  • The Classical Tradition
  • The Documentary Impulse
  • The Image of the Artist
  • Issues in Photographic Criticism

Dissertation

The final three months of your course will be focused on writing the final assessment piece, a 15,000-word dissertation. Across the two semesters, students participate in a series of skills workshops designed to help prepare for the dissertation element. Student dissertations will be supervised by members of the teaching staff who will advise on the choice of subject and provide guidance throughout the research process. The completed dissertation must be submitted by a date specified in August.

Students may also apply to attend a three-week summer school as part of an exchange programme with the École du Louvre in Paris, in which case they write a correspondingly shorter dissertation. Students are expected to arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodation.

If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for the MLitt, there are exit awards available that allow suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and, assuming you have attained appropriate grades, receive a PGDip instead of a MLitt.
