Course summary

This flexible programme offers you a range of topics for your own essay-writing and dissertation. You’ll have the opportunity to take a research tutorial option, allowing the course to be tailored to your interests. Your dissertation also allows you to study a topic of your choice intensively, possibly as a precursor to PhD research.

Our department is one of the leading centres in the world for the study of art and material culture. It’s also the only centre in the UK concerned with the study of art worldwide. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), UEA was ranked third in the UK for the quality of its research impact in Art and Design: History, Practice and Theory (Times Higher REF 2014 Analysis).

ABOUT

On this unique programme you’ll study the historical and contemporary arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. You’ll benefit from teaching that emphasises museum anthropology and material culture. At the same time you’ll engage with the issues involved in the analysis and display of these works of art, both in their original contexts and in museums and exhibitions.

This MA is cross-disciplinary. That means you’ll engage with regional developments and shared themes across anthropology, art history, archaeology and museology. Throughout the programme you’ll encounter contemporary theories and current methods of research.

You’ll also have the opportunity to study the world-famous collection of art held in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, itself a celebrated icon of modern museum architecture. UEA’s Art History department is a world-leading art history department.
