Ecole du Louvre

Come to Glasgow and also study in Washington and Paris...

History of Art at Glasgow is justly proud of its associations with major institutions abroad, giving its students at undergraduate and postgraduate level opportunities to both study and gain work experience through placements.  

Available to students registered on any of Glasgow’s History of Art taught and research postgraduate programmes are opportunities to spend a semester in either Paris or Washington DC. Through partnerships with the History of the Decorative Arts Program run by the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and George Mason University and the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, Glasgow students may apply to join either programme for the second semester and also take advantage of a placement/dissertation research opportunity in one of the partner’s associated museums and galleries.

Washington will be of interest to those students wishing to study aspects of the history of the decorative arts (including dress and textiles) and wish to have a placement in one of the 19 museums and galleries which form a part of the Smithsonian.  Paris is an option for French-speaking students with a fine art, decorative art, or museology interest and who might wish to gain experience within one of the French national museums or galleries.

These opportunities are competitive with 2-3 students going to Washington and 2-3 to Paris annually. Those choosing Paris will need to demonstrate fluency in French.
