This is for you if... you want an interesting and wide-ranging introduction to the complex and changing position of the country house in its local, regional and national environment.



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.

Leicester, United Kingdom

United Kingdom The University of Leicester was founded almost a hundred years ago in the aftermath of the Great War. The men and women who built this new institution hoped that it would be not only a living memorial to the darkness of their recent past, but a beacon of hope for the future. Their aim was that sacrifices made in war should be commemorated through education and research that would change the world for the better.
