Study type Taught



On this unique programme, you’ll study the historical and contemporary arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. You’ll benefit from teaching that emphasises museum anthropology and material culture. At the same time, you’ll engage with the issues involved in the analysis and display of these works of art, both in their original contexts and in museums and exhibitions.

This MA is cross-disciplinary. That means you’ll engage with regional developments and shared themes across anthropology, art history, archaeology and museology. Throughout the programme, you’ll encounter contemporary theories and current methods of research.

You’ll also have the opportunity to study the world-famous collection of art held in the Sainsbury Centre, itself a celebrated icon of modern museum architecture. UEA’s Art History department is world-leading in its field.
