Our expertise covers all major European art historical periods from Antiquity, the Middle-Ages and Renaissance, to Romanticism, Realism, Modernism, and contemporary Art. We also have specialist knowledge in:

  • the decorative art and design of the 19th-20th century
  • textile conservation; and
  • Chinese art.

Study with us, and you'll be taught by world-leading scholars and benefit from being based in one of the most inspirational and accessible cities for art and design in the UK. With an art gallery on campus and collaborative links with Glasgow Museums, our students benefit from hands-on experience and gain many practical skills as part of their degree programmes.
