Postgraduate taught degrees

We offer a wide range of taught MLitt programmes that reflect our research expertise. Our MLitt programmes provide opportunities to study aspects of art history both in-depth, and in relation to wider cultural, social, and theoretical contexts. They also include the rapidly developing field of technical art history. All are available on a one year full-time or two-year part-time basis, and most include work placement opportunities. The one-year taught MRes provides a larger independent research component, whilst a two-year MPhil in Textile Conservation is offered by our Centre for Textile Conservation and Technical Art History.

Glasgow offers a highly stimulating study environment. The Hunterian Art Gallery and Museum is one of the leading university collections in the UK, and students can also benefit from our major AHRC research projects on Whistler and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, EU collaborative research projects on online performing arts collections and contemporary museology, and our partnerships with the National Inventory of Continental and European Paintings and Public Catalogue Foundation. Our collaborative agreement with Glasgow Life provides unique research and placement opportunities at the city’s outstanding collections, whilst the history of art resource centre has over 5,000 books, selected periodical holdings and 15,000 exhibition and gallery catalogues.
