This programme offers you a number of ways in which to explore the history and theory of art and its display in exhibitions and museums. It is perfect for providing you with a comprehensive overview.
You will examine art in its historical contexts, the theoretical frameworks of interpretation and their relationship as physical objects to practices and concepts of display. You have the opportunity to put your learning into practice through an optional internship within one of Edinburgh’s many museums or galleries.
Equally spread over the pre- and post-1800 periods, the programme content will allow you to develop an excellent knowledge of the discipline of art history, advanced research abilities and valuable vocational experience.
Normally a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent.
