Overview On this unique programme, you’ll study the historical and contemporary arts of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. You’ll benefit from teaching that emphasises museum anthropology and material culture. At the same time, you’ll engage with the issues involved in the analysis and display of these works of art, both in their original contexts and in museums and exhibitions. This MA is cross-disciplinary. That means you’ll engage with regional developments and shared themes across anthropology, art history, archaeology and museology. Throughout the programme, you’ll encounter contemporary theories and current methods of research. You’ll also have the opportunity to study the world-famous collection of art held in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, itself a celebrated icon of modern museum architecture. UEA’s Art History department is world-leading in its field. About This Course This flexible programme offers you a range of topics for your own essay-writing and dissertation. Your dissertation also allows you to study a topic of your choice intensively, possibly as a precursor to PhD research. Our department is one of the leading centres in the world for the study of art and material culture. It’s also the only centre in the UK concerned with the study of art worldwide.
