You'll examine art in its historical contexts, the theoretical frameworks of interpretation and their relationship as physical objects to practices and concepts of display. You have the opportunity to put your learning into practice through an optional internship within one of Edinburgh's many museums or galleries. Equally spread over the pre and post-1800 periods, the programme content will allow you to develop an excellent knowledge of the discipline of art history, advanced research abilities as well as valuable vocational experience.
Teaching includes a mixture of small-group teaching, individual tutorials, research seminars, lectures, and an internship, subject to availability. Half of the working week involves independent study and research. Formal assessment is by means of essays, project work and a dissertation.
Students who successfully complete the programme will:
* Have studied courses offering them a thorough grounding in the History of Art;
* If choosing the internship option, students will have valuable work experience in a field related to art history, and/or in writing art criticism;
* Have completed a major piece of original, independent art historical research;
* Have shown themselves to be capable of further research in the History of Art.
