Introduction

This innovative MA course is one of the first in the UK to focus specifically on global history, offering you the chance to investigate one of the most dynamic areas of current historical enquiry and debate. At its centre is a core module exploring the way in which global history has emerged, the methods it adopts, the subject areas it addresses and the criticisms it has attracted.

Throughout, you are encouraged to explore how the global can be investigated in relation to the regional and the local, as part of wider debates on historical methods and interpretation. This provides a route into studying major regions of the globe, including Latin America, India and China. You’ll also benefit from the Department’s Global History and Culture Centre, with the option to participate in seminars, lectures and conferences arranged by the Centre.

The course offers an excellent route into PhD research in the emerging field of global history and culture. Recent postgraduates have also advanced into careers in the cultural sector, consultancy and teaching.

For the art historian, Venice is one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Our MA gives you a unique opportunity to study the artistic production and cultural identity of Venice, and includes a term studying in Venice. Alongside the art and architecture of Venice, the course explores the broader historical and theoretical issues raised by the city and its cultural legacies, such as global connections, colour and perception, and materiality.

The course starts in mid-September with a two-week induction before the beginning of the autumn term. This allows us to introduce you to the department and its procedures. This is a chance for students to acquaint themselves with the university, its campus, and the support it offers to postgraduates. The induction also includes introductory classes on Venice and its art, plus one or two field trips to important art-historical or architectural sites in the region.

You’ll spend the autumn term in Venice at our teaching and research base Palazzo Pesaro Papafava, where you will explore Venetian and North Italian art in situ. On your return to Warwick in the spring term, you take a third module concerned with some aspect of the legacies of Venetian art and culture. You’ll also take a core module in research methods which prepares you for researching and writing your dissertation over the summer.

For part-time students, you will attend the induction and spend the first term in Venice, taking two modules. You then take a third module in the spring term of the first year, the fourth in the spring term of the second year, and you research and write your dissertation over the summer of your second year.Our postgraduates go on to work in a range of creative and heritage roles, in museums, NGOs and the arts sector. Others have continued their studies at PhD level, and pursued careers as curators and academics.

Our Diploma is specifically designed for students whose background may not be in art history, but who wish to study the subject at postgraduate level. It provides an ideal bridge between undergraduate and postgraduate study, and many of our Diploma students go on to our MA degree programme.

The structure of the Diploma is designed to move you towards an increasingly advanced level of study as you progress through the course. You will follow a broad range of historical and theoretical modules, beginning with options from our extensive menu of secondyear undergraduate courses. You will then have the opportunity to pursue a specialised area in more depth, choosing from options such as Colour and its Meaning, Mannerism, Visual Art and Poetry, and East meets West.

These specialised modules are taught in small groups and are directly informed by the research activities of members of staff. Your course culminates in a dissertation that enables you to further explore an area of personal academic interest.

Are you keen to specialise in academic study of your chosen language and culture, and do you have the curiosity and motivation to develop an individual research path, leading potentially to PhD study? This innovative course, combining cross-School taught modules with language specific research, offers an advanced preparation for doctoral research.

You’ll work with the support of leading researchers of international reputation, drawing on our expertise in critical theory, research skills, and key research themes from across the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. You’ll benefit from a broad introduction to critical theories and perspectives across the European and North American intellectual traditions, as well as the opportunity to develop your research specialism in French, German, Hispanic or Italian Studies, or in comparative analysis of these cultures. We also provide research skills training, helping you to build subject-specific and transferrable skills.

Our researchers collaborate to teach the core critical modules, and we encourage interdisciplinary teaching or supervision within and outside Modern Languages through optional taught modules, Advanced Study Options, and your dissertation. Advanced Study Options enable you to pursue individual research pathways with the guidance of a tutor or tutors before undertaking your dissertation.

The skills you’ll acquire in research, critical analysis and advanced argumentation, written and oral presentation, project design, and time management will prepare you thoroughly for doctoral research and an academic research career. Equally, you’ll be well placed to pursue professional routes into sectors such as publishing, media, and non-academic research.

Structure and assessment

The syllabus for the MA for Research in German Studies comprises:
-A taught core module on cultural and critical theory, typically taken in the first term, and assessed by a 5,000 word essay.
-Two supervised study programmes (Guided Study Options), topic dependent on the interests of the candidate, each assessed by a 5,000 word essay.
-A 20,000 word dissertation.
-A skills programme (assessed by two short bibliographical exercises), which includes a library induction/electronic resources in German Studies and general research skills, giving oral presentations and using PowerPoint, writing a literature review, choosing a topic and writing a dissertation, writing a PhD proposal, and applying for funding.

Note that this course is different from the German Studies BY Research MA, in that the latter does not include taught elements.
