Scottish Art & Visual Culture (MSc)


Course Description

Programme description

This programme aims to introduce students to research in the History of Art at the highest level and develop research interests in Scottish Art and Visual Culture.

This is the only masters programme in Scottish Art in the UK. It combines close academic study with an internship in a local institution. Edinburgh is without doubt the best city for studies in Scottish Art. Our art collections in this area are world-class.

Programme structure

The first two semesters are based around small-group teaching, and an internship. From April to September, students are engaged full-time, researching and writing their dissertations.

Learning outcomes

Students who successfully complete the programme will:

have valuable work experience in a field related to art history, including writing art criticism;
have completed a major piece of original, independent art-historical research;
have shown themselves to be capable of further research in the History of Art.

Career opportunities

The unique nature of this programme means potential employers, both in academia and the cultural heritage sector, hold the degree in very high regard. Furthermore, the experience and contacts you gain through your internship could provide a solid foundation for an eventual career in a museum or gallery environment. Throughout the programme you will also acquire a number of highly transferable skills (communication and analysis, for example) that will be an asset to any career path you choose.
