Warburg Institute, School of Advanced Study, University of London
Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture
The normal minimum entry requirement is an upper 2nd class Honours degree from a British university, or an equivalent qualification from a foreign institution, in any discipline in the humanities which is related to the course. In addition to a good knowledge of Art History, especially related to the Renaissance, a reading knowledge of 1 and preferably 2 European modern languages, apart from English, is required. All students whose 1st language is not English must provide recent evidence that their written and spoken English is adequate for postgraduate study.
All students will take 3 core modules and 2 elective modules. Core modules include: Art history (iconology); curatorship in the National Gallery; language, paleographical and archive skills. Optional modules include: Artistic intentions 1400 to 1700; Islamic authorities and Arabic elements in the Renaissance; music in the later middle ages and the Renaissance; new worlds, ancient texts (Renaissance intellectual history and the discovery of the Americas); Renaissance art literature; Renaissance philosophy; Renaissance material culture; sin and sanctity in the Reformation.
All students are required to submit 3 essays of 4,000 words, 1 at the beginning of the 2nd term and the remaining 2 at the beginning of the 3rd term. A dissertation of 15,000 words, on a topic agreed by the student and supervisor, has to be submitted by 30 September. The course is examined on these 4 pieces of written work, a catalogue entry (submitted at the end of the 1st term), and examinations in language, palaeographical and archive skills. Students are allocated a course tutor and, in addition, are encouraged to discuss their work with other members of the staff at the Warburg Institute and the National Gallery. Because of the small numbers involved (places are limited to 12 per year), students have frequent contact, formal and informal, with their teachers.
