MA The Arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas


Course Description

Study:

This Master of Arts degree provides students with detailed knowledge of the visual arts, contemporary and historical, of the three geographical areas of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. This course highlights the methodological and theoretical issues involved in their analysis and display, in their original contexts and in those of museums and exhibitions.

Structure:

Several disciplines are explored including: anthropology, art history, archaeology, museology, sociology. The programme consists of three taught regional units, tuition linking to a timed essay and a dissertation. A student wishing to conduct advanced pre-PhD study can substitute one of the regional units with a themed research tutorial option.

Teaching:

Students get more lectures, seminars, tutorials and general contact time with academic staff than students at many other leading History of Art departments in the UK. Art History and World Art Studies is based in Norman Foster’s world-famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, an icon of modern design, which contains an astounding art collection with major internationally-renowned works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Edgar Degas, Jacob Epstein, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso.

Employability:

UEA graduates of Art History and World Art Studies go on to high profile posts in such prestigious institutions as the British Museum, V&A, Tate and Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, as well as leading History of Art departments, publishers and the commercial art world.
