The Graduate Diploma provides an introduction to the Art History. If you have completed an undergraduate degree in a subject other than Art History and now wish to pursue this area at Master's or research level, this course will give you a brilliant foundation in art history, archaeology, anthropology, cultural heritage and museum studies. You will engage with all forms of visual and material creativity from oil painting, sculpture and drawing through to architecture, photography, video and installation art.
Students choose from the full range of undergraduate modules offered in the School to build a unique programme tailored to their interests. Small groups of students study together in a friendly, supportive and open environment, supported by great practical facilities. Study a wide range of artistic cultures, periods and forms based in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts at UEA.
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.
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.
