Undergraduate study in art history at Essex offers a unique combination of the historical and theoretical study of art, visual culture and
curating from the renaissance to the present.
We are internationally recognised for our teaching and research across a wide range of areas in art history,
theory and visual culture. Our specialisms include renaissance studies, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art, modern and contemporary art,
as well as curatorial studies and art from Latin America.
We are internationally recognised as a leading centre of postgraduate study in art history and curatorial studies, both at Masters and PhD level.
Our Centre for Curatorial Studies is a research and teaching unit based in our School that focuses on contemporary curatorial theory and practice and contemporary museology.
