Art History and Theory
Art History and Theory has been recognised for its teaching excellence and innovation, and we pride ourselves on the excellent feedback we receive from students at all levels. By connecting our research with our teaching, we create innovative, effective and enjoyable classes.
Each year, we also place a number of students in internships in art institutions and museums, where students gain invaluable experience and insights into the work of art historians and museum professionals.
