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.
Applicants for doctoral study can apply through us for PhD studentships funded by the AHRC and CHASE
(Consortium for Humanities and the Arts South-East England), which includes the University of Essex and six partner institutions.
