MA in Art History and Visual Culture is a great programme that gives you a broad knowledge in this field. We’ve looked at how different continents and countries perceive art, which has led to many interesting discussions. We’ve also studied art historians, and how they approached art in each particular era, considering the methods they used which has been fascinating.
