The Graduate Diploma provides an introduction to art history. If you have already completed an undergraduate degree in a subject other than art history and you now wish to pursue art history at MA or research level, this course will bring you up to speed with the subject. Students select six modules from the wide range of undergraduate modules on offer in the School.
Candidates for whom English is not their first language are expected to provide evidence of proficiency in written and spoken English. A minimum IELTS overall band score of 6.5 is required with a minimum of 6 in each section.
