Art History and Curating
This programme offers a theoretical and critical approach to the study of art history and curatorial practice; focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the modern period (19th and 20th centuries), the programme addresses key developments in art and art history up to the present day, as well as offering theoretical and practical training in the field of museum studies and curating. There are opportunities to participate in overseas study tours and in recent years the department has visited Amsterdam, Barcelona, Bilbao, Milan, Paris, Florence, Venice and New York; regional exhibition and site visits will also take place.
Normally a 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) will be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Master's award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.
The programme consists of three taught modules, a work placement or negotiated learning module and a dissertation and dissertation preparation. Modules include: issues in modern art, 1848-present; contemporary curating; work placement; negotiated learning module; museum theory and practice; dissertation preparation; dissertation.
Each module is assessed individually; assessment methods vary but generally include essays, presentations and a dissertation.
