MA Programmes

Our taught MA programmes provide unparalleled staff contact hours with internationally renowned academics. They give students a deep and systematic understanding of their chosen field of study whilst training them in the advanced skills – including languages and palaeography - required to undertake primary-sourced based research.

We offer MA programmes in:

Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture

Offered by the Warburg Institute in collaboration with the National Gallery, London, the programme combines the study of artworks and their cultural contexts with high-level linguistic, archive and research skills for a new generation of academic art historians and museum curators. 

Cultural, Intellectual and Visual History

The MA in Cultural, Intellectual and Visual History introduces students to the interaction of ideas, images and social history and gives students the language training to study the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with an emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity.
