This course will explore 21st century art history and learn about this ever-expanding discipline, marked by interdisciplinary cross-overs, varied and competing methodologies, and a huge range of objects of study that can break through the boundaries of the traditional notion of ‘art’. Study issues as diverse as authorship, subjectivity, reception studies, and cultural and gender identity. You’ll be primed to undertake art-historical investigation and a research project on a specific topic of your choice.

You study two core modules and also individual tutorials with your supervisor and attend regular research seminars. The programme leads to a written thesis and can be studied either full time or part time. After completing your taught modules, you continue with independent research, guided by your Director of Studies. Throughout this time spent working towards your thesis, you are considered a full member of our research community and completely supported until you successfully complete your degree. You may attend additional training, workshops and research seminars. As a full-time ResM student, you submit your thesis after 12 months (part time, after 24 months) or pay a nominal sum for up to six months’ additional ‘writing-up’ time (part time, 12 months). Your viva voce (or oral examination) takes place following submission of your thesis.
