About

We welcome enquiries on any topic, but particularly those listed above, and will provide you with excellent research resources to enable you to complete your research, which will culminate in a thesis of up to 100,000 words. 

Overview

The History and Philosophy of Art programme from University of Kent offers a supportive, inclusive and innovative learning environment within the multi-disciplinary School of Arts. Applications are especially welcome in the areas of curation, Renaissance and Baroque art, contemporary practice (including global art), philosophy of art and aesthetics, curation and photography.

You will have a minimum of two supervisors who will support and guide you through your academic and professional development throughout your studies. You will meet regularly with your supervisor(s) who will not only supervise your research project but will help you to identify parts of your research and development where you may require further training or support. A series of reviews will take place throughout your studies in order to ensure that your research project stays on track and that you have all the necessary support and resources required to successfully complete it.
