Postgraduate Study at Warwick
The postgraduate environment in the History of Art department is a vibrant and stimulating one. We offer a range of taught and research-based programmes which will deepen and extend your academic interests and allow you to pursue specialist work in your preferred areas of inquiry. Our courses will help you to develop skills that not only enable intellectual and personal development but are also transferable and marketable, enhancing employment possibilities in related fields such as academia, arts administration, the art market, curating, teaching and journalism. With staff expertise spanning the medieval to the contemporary, we are able to offer research supervision for a wide range of topics, while our unique MA programme benefits from the department's teaching base in Venice.
