MA Art History and Visual Culture focuses on intercultural issues in the visual arts, preparing graduate students for careers in the arts and creative cultural industries. The programme is distinctive in two ways. Firstly, engaging students with an academic curriculum in tune with current interdisciplinary trends in visual culture, exploring a variety of visual art across cultures and through time, particularly in terms of what is happening on the contemporary global art scene. Secondly, giving students the skills and experience, including classes on professional practice and an accredited internship, for successful career placements in the arts and creative cultural industries. The programme is offered at Richmond's Kensington Campus in the centre of London.
