History of Art and or Archaeology

This programme provides courses in the history of art, architecture and material culture of Africa and Asia, from their origins to modern times; the regions covered include China, Japan, Korea, the Islamic world, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Africa (including the African Diaspora).

Entry requirements

Upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Other qualifications, however, may be acceptable and the Department welcomes mature students. Students taking the MA degree may or may not have previous experience of our subjects. While knowledge of a relevant Asian or African language is not a requirement, for some courses it is an advantage for admission (see individual course descriptions for details). It is possible to include an element of language training within the MA programme by taking an Asian or African language as 1 of the 2 'minor' courses. This option may be particularly desirable for those intending to progress to the PhD, who do not already have the necessary language skills.
