You will benefit from the extensive resources of the University Library and Archives, and The Hunterian, the University’s museum and art gallery, which feature the world-famous Hunter, Whistler and Mackintosh collections. You will also have access to Kelvin Hall, the University and City’s innovative collections-access centre.
In your third-year vacation you will receive a grant to assist you to visit museums, galleries and buildings relevant to your chosen course options and dissertation subject.
The first year provides an introduction to history of art in two courses: 'Art history and its Materials and Techniques' and 'Art History in Action'. These courses allow you to study works by some of the best-known artists, designers and architects of all time, including non-western material, and they also introduce you to some key issues in history of art: the uses of different techniques and materials, and relationships between art theory, the role of art patrons and the concept of style. The two courses taken in sequence will prepare you for further levels of study, but either can be taken as an introduction to the discipline by students not intending to take it beyond Level-1.
This History of Art course at the University of Glasgow offers an excellent starting point for careers in publishing, journalism, teaching and librarianship, and for work in museums, galleries, the heritage sector, art dealing and auction houses. In recent years, our graduates have been appointed to posts including a Getty Collections Management Internship in the USA, and to curatorial or administrative posts at Dulwich Picture Gallery, London; Handel House, London; and the Design and Artists Collecting Society, London.
