This Diploma has been designed as a conversion programme for graduates of other disciplines who wish to carry out research at higher levels in the fields of modern and contemporary art history and visual cultures.
The programme sets out to be both introductory and experiential.
Rather than provide conventional chronological surveys, the programme explores and addresses chosen themes within an interdisciplinary context.
Assessment: Essays; written papers; research files; creative journals.
What you study
Central to the programme is the core course, a lecture and seminar series that introduces you to a range of critical perspectives that have shaped the history and theory of the discipline. As such, the course encourages you to develop a fuller awareness of arts cultural and political significance in the past, and asks you to relate your historical understanding to current debates among artists, critics and historians. This is accompanied by a laboratory module, which gives you the opportunity to process the taught materials further through strategies such as museum and gallery visits, film screenings, and experimental projects. You also choose one option module and one special subject. These in-depth modules allow you to explore themes in art history or theory that are of particular interest to you.
You'll acquire a wide range of skills in research, critical thinking, visual analysis, writing and other modes of presentation.
Many of our students go on to carry out further postgraduate studies. These then lead into careers in museums and galleries, publishing, education, the media, journalism, and marketing. Find out more about what our graduates go on to do.
You should have (or expect to be awarded) an undergraduate degree of at least second class standard in a relevant/related subject.
You might also be considered for some programmes if you arent a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level.
We also accept a wide range of international equivalent qualifications, which can be found on our country-specific pages. If you'd like more information, please contact the Admissions Office.
If your first language isn't English, you need to demonstrate the required level of English language competence to enroll and study on our programmes.
