About History of Art (MA) at University of Warwick

For the art historian, Venice is one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Our MA gives you a unique opportunity to study the artistic production and cultural identity of Venice, and includes a term studying in Venice. Alongside the art and architecture of Venice, the course explores the broader historical and theoretical issues raised by the city and its cultural legacies, such as global connections, colour and perception, and materiality.

The course starts in mid-September with a two-week induction before the beginning of the autumn term. This allows us to introduce you to the department and its procedures. This is a chance for students to acquaint themselves with the university, its campus, and the support it offers to postgraduates. The induction also includes introductory classes on Venice and its art, plus one or two field trips to important art-historical or architectural sites in the region.

You’ll spend the autumn term in Venice at our teaching and research base Palazzo Pesaro Papafava, where you will explore Venetian and North Italian art in situ. On your return to Warwick in the spring term, you take a third module concerned with some aspect of the legacies of Venetian art and culture. You’ll also take a core module in research methods which prepares you for researching and writing your dissertation over the summer.

For part-time students, you will attend the induction and spend the first term in Venice, taking two modules. You then take a third module in the spring term of the first year, the fourth in the spring term of the second year, and you research and write your dissertation over the summer of your second year.
Our postgraduates go on to work in a range of creative and heritage roles, in museums, NGOs and the arts sector. Others have continued their studies at PhD level, and pursued careers as curators and academics.
