Overview

Essex, University of Art History and Theory programme, features a dynamic group of art historians investigating the production and reception of images and built environments, across cultures and media from the early modern period to the present. 

While we adopt a diverse range of approaches in our writing and teaching, our work demonstrates a commitment to three key ideas.

Your future

Many of our graduates are now working in academic institutions, in national or regional museums or galleries, or in other arts-related professions, both throughout the UK and abroad. Several graduates are now Professors in leading art history departments such as CUNY, while others have worked as curators at high-profile museums such as the Tate Modern.

Programme Structure

Example structure

  • A research degree doesn't have a taught structure, giving you the chance to investigate your chosen topic in real depth and reach a profound understanding.
  • In communicating that understanding, through a thesis or other means, you have a rare opportunity to generate knowledge. 
  • A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers.
