Careers with art history
Art History is among the most vocational of all Humanities degree subjects and often leads directly to careers in museums or exhibition making.
Many of our former graduates now work for leading museums and galleries in the UK including The British Museum, The National Gallery, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate Modern, the Royal Academy, for the commercial salerooms and for heritage organizations such as The National Trust.
A degree in Art History can also qualify you for professions such as teaching, journalism, publishing, TV and the media and arts administration.
