Course summary

The History of Art Diploma is designed for students who's background may not be in art history but wish to study the subject at postgraduate level.

Course Overview

Our Graduate Diploma is specifically designed for students whose background may not be in art history, but who wish to study the subject at postgraduate level. The Graduate Diploma provides an ideal bridge to further postgraduate study and is designed to prepare students for the MA, providing a strong foundation in history of art as a discipline. When the opportunity arises seminars will be taken out of the classroom and artworks will be studied in situ. The independent research project will enable you to work closely with your supervisor on a one to-one basis to research and write on a topic related to your studies on the course.
