This innovative degree course is concerned with the visual culture of classical antiquity and modern theories of its study – Greek and Roman sculpture, architecture, mosaics, painting, urbanism. It brings together archaeological, art historical and historical approaches to examine how visual material was treated and understood in antiquity and reinvented for centuries to come.

As well as learning how to look at ancient visual evidence and to use it to construct art-historical and historical arguments, students also study a range of responses to and theories around it – from various periods of classicism in antiquity to modern advertising; from stylistic analysis to modern media studies.

This course will enable you to develop your understanding of the visual culture of classical antiquity. It combines iconographical, theoretical and cultural approaches to a wide range of visual material to examine both its functions and resonances in antiquity, and its restoration, decontextualisation and reinvention in the modern world. This MA is a fulfilling experience for those interested in the art and architecture of the classical past as well as excellent training for anyone considering doctoral research.

This course will introduce you to a range of different approaches to the study of the history of the Graeco-Roman world, combined with opportunities for specialisation in particular areas. Through your studies, you will broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of ancient history to standards significantly superior to those expected of a final year undergraduate. You will have the opportunity to acquire and practise specific study skills, such as historiography, methodology, ancient and modern languages. The course will also prepare you to undertake original independent research in an aspect of ancient history.

Through core modules, 'Researching the Ancient World' and 'Approaches to Ancient History', you will be given a strong foundation in the skills and techniques necessary for effective research in this field. In addition, this course offers an annually changing menu of optional modules, which will enable you to develop your knowledge and understanding of the history and culture of the Greek and Roman worlds down to the end of antiquity. Due to the flexible nature of this course, you can make your module choices according to your personal interests and aspirations. (Please note that module details may be subject to change.)

By studying a taught programme at masters level, you will further develop your academic skills in terms of communication, presentation and research. Postgraduates of all backgrounds are highly sought after by employers because they are able to demonstrate a stronger skills set, so this course will prepare you for a wide range of careers.

The taught masters (MA) programme in art history considers works of art and visual material in the broadest sense. We encourage the examination of the social and material histories of objects and images; explorations of the processes of cultural production, circulation, and consumption; and the development of original theoretical approaches to understanding works of art and associated cultural phenomena.

The Department of Art History offers two pathways for the MA in Art History: 'Renaissance to the Present Day' and 'Modern Art, Criticism' and Display'. Students of both pathways study the core module 'Critical Approaches to Art History and Visual Culture'.

Your choice of pathway will almost certainly relate to your present interests in art history or visual culture. All MA pathways are modular and the choice of pathway affects the modules available to you. With the help of a knowledgeable and supportive teaching staff, the pathway programme is designed to offer necessary flexibility to help you make important decisions about modules and dissertation topics.

Students on the 'Modern Art, Criticism and Display' pathway use a virtual 3D gallery software system to produce their own projects in which they are able to virtually 'curate' art exhibitions in virtual three-dimensional gallery spaces.

Studying art history gives students valuable transferable skills, an advanced qualification in the discipline and a rigorous foundation for further research and progression to PhD research, all of which are ideal for a range of careers.

Our MA programmes are particularly suited for those wishing to work in the contemporary art world. Our students have an excellent record of obtaining internships in major UK-based international galleries while they study, which is ideal preparation for future employment.

The Department of Art History incorporates the Nottingham Institute for Research in Visual Culture (NIRVC), which is a forum for research in art-historical and visual culture studies, drawing on a range of disciplines, within and beyond the University.

The University’s custombuilt Lakeside Arts Centre provides an excellent environment to support postgraduate studies in visual culture, with contemporary and historic art exhibitions at the Djanogly Art Gallery, and the DH Lawrence Pavilion – a newlybuilt drama, film, and performance space.

This practice-based course is designed and delivered through collaboration with the museum and heritage sector and in partnership with a number of institutions, sites and agencies reflecting the diversity of the sector, including: Museum Development East Midlands, East Midlands Museums Service, Nottingham City Museums and Galleries, Museum of the Mercian Regiment, The Canalside Heritage Centre, The Galleries of Justice Museum, the National Videogame Arcade, and Barker Langham.

Why choose this course?

Museum and Heritage Development is a progressive, interdisciplinary course that combines the academic interrogation of museums and heritage as ideas, organisations and experiences with creative, practice-based approaches to their ongoing development in the 21st Century.

The course encourages and supports you to re-think and re-imagine museums and heritage through critical engagement and reflection and experimentation and creative practice; to develop the confidence and courage to see yourself as a scholar-practitioner leading the field. In doing so the course integrates academic and professional practice of what is an increasingly international, interdisciplinary field with the intention of establishing a new benchmark in postgraduate provision.

Special features

The course is developed and delivered through collaboration and engagement with leading organisations within the city, the region, the UK and internationally. You will work on live projects throughout the taught elements of the course as the core component of your academic and professional development. This is further supported by guest keynote speakers, visiting professors, field visits, and professional student mentors from organisations across the region.

A strong international dimension to understanding museums and heritage runs throughout the course and is supported by an optional not-for-credit international field visit, in addition to case studies and literatures encountered in the classroom. Museum and Heritage Development introduces students to the realities of professional practice whilst at same time providing opportunities to speculate on the future of the field.

Working with Barker Langham, a leading international museum and heritage consultancy, each academic year culminates with a Degree Show; an exhibition in Nottingham based on the ideas and work students have developed during the taught components of the course.

Whether you see yourself as primarily interested in historical theology, or in the social history of Christianity, or are simply not sure what your focus will be, this degree will have something to offer you. Read more
Whether you see yourself as primarily interested in historical theology, or in the social history of Christianity, or are simply not sure what your focus will be, this degree will have something to offer you. The academics who have created it happily embrace various different perspectives, and have no particular orthodoxy of methodological approach. They are endeavouring to use the vast richness of the historical resources of the Christian tradition to explore the interface between history, culture and theology, and we will do our best to help you to do the same.

This course allows you either to take a range of modules from different periods from the earliest Christian history to the present, or to specialise in either the early and medieval periods, or the post-Reformation era. It is suitable for those who wish to prepare for a research degree, and for those who wish to undertake graduate level study to enhance and deepen their understanding of the Church’s past.

The course director is Dr Frances Knight, Associate Professor in the History of Modern Christianity. Frances has previously taught at the University of Cambridge, the Open University and the University of Wales, Lampeter. She specialises in the history of Christianity in England and Wales since 1800.
