    Programme Description

    The Department of History of Art at Bristol is a thriving centre for the study of visual art and art criticism. Students on the MA programme are encouraged to explore a diversity of historical periods and critical approaches, from medieval altarpieces, through French 19th-century painting, to German Expressionism and Soviet public monuments. A strength of the Department is its concentration on British art, where staff specialisms include Tudor portraits, Victorian aestheticism, Edwardian cosmopolitans, and contemporary diasporic art in Britain.

    A programme of collaborations with national and regional museums offers an exceptional opportunity to work in museum and curatorial contexts while studying for a postgraduate degree in History of Art.

    All members of staff in the History of Art Department are involved in teaching the MA, which combines a range of taught course options with a supervised dissertation on a subject of your choice. The programme is broadly based, and designed to appeal to graduates from any educational background. It develops the skills and knowledge of those who have studied History of Art before, as well as providing an entry for anyone new to the subject.
