MA FT

The Master of Arts in the field of Art History provides advanced training in both academic art history and professional curatorial work. With dual expertise in both Asian and western art history, the department offers a unique programme enabling students to conduct in-depth study in Asian art, western art, and intercultural aspects of art. One required core course introduces advanced academic skills in art historical methodology, research, and writing, with a second required core course introducing advanced curatorial skills in techniques and materials, connoisseurship, and aspects of museum work. Students choose four elective courses, which change year to year and provide the flexibility to shape a curriculum suitable to their individual needs and interests. The MA dissertation is completed during the summer months under the supervision of an expert supervisor from inside or outside the department. Scholarship assistance is available for students demonstrating financial need.
