Postgraduate study

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.

If you have any questions about our postgraduate courses, please contact our Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Michael Hatt at m.hatt@warwick.ac.uk. He will be happy to arrange a one-to-one Skype call to assist with any questions you might have about our courses, the department, or the application process.

    Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

    The Department regards diversity and equality as highly desirable, and completely abhors discrimination of any kind. These values are rigorously implemented in curriculum review, staff development, and the recruitment of colleagues and students alike. We strongly encourage applications from all underrepresented groups, particularly from those with disabilities, people from ethnic minorities or disadvantaged backgrounds, women, and members of LBGTQUA+ communities.
