Our teaching and supervision Our teaching and supervision

We teach right across the curriculum, from undergraduate to PhD students. Our teaching and research – in the visual arts of Britain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia, Spain and North America – is informed by dialogues with colleagues working on the arts of Africa, Asia, South America and the Pacific, as well as those working in the Schools of American Studies, History, and Literature, Drama and Creative Writing.

We offer an MA History of Art programme which features several pathways for students interested in studying European and North American art, while the World Art Research Seminar serves as a public forum for exposure to new research and debates in these fields. The School's undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes (including those in Museum and Gallery Studies) also draw on the knowledge, expertise and contacts gained by faculty members as curators of European and American art in major museums and galleries, within the UK and internationally.

Grants and scholarships are available on a competitive basis to both UK/EU and international students. These include both University and faculty-administered AHRC grants.

Students following European and American Studies options will be automatically entitled to benefit from the activities of the Centre.

These include:

  • Invitation to a regular social gathering and research seminar in term-time
  • Opportunities to meet other researchers in their area of interest as part of a mutually supportive community
  • Access to a network of links in the UK, Europe and North America
  • Advice and access to fieldwork opportunities
  • Involvement in specialist events and visits to other institutions and museum collections
  • The possibility of involvement in collaborative research and exhibition projections developed by members  of the Centre
