Course summary

If you want to focus on researching one specific area in the History of Art without going straight into a PhD, then the MRes is the programme for you. At the end of this programme many of our graduates continue on to do a PhD, where they undertake a much more extensive research project. The core of the MRes programme is a 20,000-word thesis, which is supported by both research training and art theory modules.

The History of Art MRes aims to: Develop your subject-specific analytical skills, Enhance your generic research skills, Provide a critical framework of the historiography and methods of the discipline of art history, Develop your skills of verbal presentation and argument, Develop a deep understanding of the interpretation of visual material.
