The MA in Art History (Hons) at the University of St Andrews is a well-rounded discipline and embraces aspects of economic, social and political history, languages and literature, philosophy, and psychology to provide you with the relevant context with which to analyse works of art.
In the first two years, you will cover a chronological survey of European art (covering painting, sculpture and architecture) from the 13th century to the present day.
Alongside Art History, in the first year of your studies, you will be required to study an additional two subjects. In the second year you will usually carry on at least one of these subjects, sometimes two.
A degree in Art History provides an excellent foundation for a career in museums and galleries, arts administration, the art trade or teaching. As Art History is studied in social, geographical, cultural and psychological contexts, you will develop an understanding of how different societies evolve and how art impacts our lives.
