University of York
History of Art
This course provides a stimulating transition from undergraduate study to postgraduate work. It will train you in advanced methods of art-historical research, raise your level of intellectual engagement, instill an awareness of your own scholarly procedures, and improve your writing skills. The course exposes you to the latest scholarship in your areas of interest and equips you to pursue independent research at the highest level. Our flexible degree structure enables a great degree of choice in how you construct pathways through your taught MA in the history of art. You can pursue: A general MA programme which includes a wide range across the history of art, choosing modules that deal with very different periods, regions, themes and topics. This provides a well-rounded training in the history of art, and is designed to cater to those students who come to the degree with a wide range of interests; or a specialised MA programme where you can select a coherent set of modules on related topics. Such a pathway can provide a comprehensive foundation for PhD research in a particular area, or a specialised career, and is enabled by the world-class expertise we offer in particular areas of art-historical study, where designated MA degrees are offered in architectural history and theory; British art; medieval art and medievalisms; sculpture studies.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
