We aim to help you develop an informed understanding of the main strands of art history, as practised in Europe and North America. We also offer curatorial units in collaboration with external museum partners, through which you will learn to research and catalogue museum collections and to mount exhibitions.
Our students are drawn from a variety of backgrounds. Some have undergraduate degrees in art history, others do not, and some are working artists. Studying for this MA in History of Art at University of Bristol is a chance to become part of a thriving academic community, with a sizeable and close-knit student body and a lively programme of research and social events.
Students who have graduated from the MA programme in History of Art have gone on to careers as journalists, art consultants, buying and marketing executives, and gallery assistants.
