At Edinburgh, the Fine Art MA degree programme enables students to combine History of Art, studied in the University, with practical art, studied in Edinburgh College of Art.
History of Art at Edinburgh is a lively and expanding subject area offering a full range of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. It is home to internationally recognised research and teaching staff. Within the University, researchers present weekly research seminars. Beyond the University, Edinburgh art history lecturers curate major international exhibitions, hold visiting fellowships at other prestigious research institutions and are frequently invited to give special lectures and conference papers.
Our research activities inform our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, allowing us to adopt a variety of different approaches. Students may take courses concentrating on issues of production, patronage, function and meaning, or on theoretical ideas: conceptualizing art and its history. The knowledge and critical skills that undergraduate and postgraduate students gain prepare them for many careers in and beyond art history.
