Course summary

Our PhD Art History and Visual Studies programme offers the opportunity to conduct in-depth research in an area of particular interest. Postgraduate research within Art History at Manchester is largely driven by the interests of our members of staff. Our research strengths include: medieval England and Italy; Italian and Northern Renaissance; Renaissance print culture; history of architecture; history of gardens; art and science; British art in the 18th and 19th centuries; Romanticism and its reception; the history and theory of the avant-garde; art and sexuality; modernism and post-colonialism; art and psychoanalysis; poststructuralism; history and theory of photography; experimental art-writing. A research degree in Art History enhances employment opportunities in many fields connected with the visual arts, architecture and material culture. These include art galleries, the art trade and auction houses, the heritage industry, architectural conservation, publishing, art criticism and aspects of arts administration, as well as university and higher education.
