Master of Arts - Studies in Art History

The University of Adelaide

Offered jointly by the University of Adelaide and the Art Gallery of South Australia, students study the collections of the Gallery, with teaching provided by curatorial and academic staff at both institutions and by national experts. On-campus classes are held after-hours, with lectures and tutorials held at the University, combined with 'hands-on' workshops at the Art Gallery. Students are encouraged to consider issues and questions reflected in specific works of art, including their: origins and fabrication; critical reception; material composition; mixed fortunes in the history of taste; subject matter; place in the life's work of the artist who made them; and so on. Students become familiar with the issues involved in curating exhibitions and the principal questions associated with connoisseurship. They will develop the research skills necessary to investigate essential issues in art history, including skills in visual analysis.
