About

On the MA in Country House: Art, History and Literature you will study the architectural development of the country house and its artistic contents, as well as its place within literature. We will also explore the economic and political importance of the house and its impact on the landscape, plus the technologies employed to design, build and run it.

As a postgraduate student in the Centre for the Study of the Country House you will have the opportunity to take part in activities run by the Centre including the annual guest lecture and individual study days at Lamport Hall, as well as visits to other country houses, museums and galleries.

You will be taught by a team of staff drawn from the University of Leicester's Department of History of Art and Film, School of English and School of History who are not only passionate about their teaching, but are also at the cutting edge of research in this area.
