Summary

This course is offered by the Warburg Institute in collaboration with the National Gallery, London. The programme combines the study of artworks and their cultural contexts with high-level linguistic, archive and research skills for a new generation of academic art historians and museum curators. The art historical and scholarly traditions of the Warburg Institute are linked to the practical experience and skills of the National Gallery to provide an academic programme which will equip students either as academic art historians with serious insight into the behind the scenes working of a great museum or as curators with the research skills necessary for high-level museum work.

Aims of the programme

- Bring together the art historical and scholarly traditions of the Warburg Institute with the practical experience and skills of the National Gallery to provide training which will equip students to become academic art historians with serious insight into the work of a great museum, or curators with the research skills necessary for high level museum work.

- Foster and develop student knowledge of and research into art, art history and curatorship.

- Provide linguistic, archive and research skills to enable graduates of the programme to research, catalogue and curate works of art held in collections of national and international standing.

- Build understanding of and ability to comment on primary source materials, both visual and textual.

- Enable students to read academic papers and publications in European languages, and to undertake scholarly research at a high level and write up the results in an accurate and rigorous way.

- Help students to acquire a familiarity with the principal sources of information in a variety of historical disciplines.

This programme is also available as a Master of Research (MRes) programme, suitable for those students who wish to undertake a substantial piece of original academic work, or a Postgraduate Certificate, ideal for students who wish to undertake further study but cannot commit to a full time master's degree.
