Aberdeen has been a centre for Celtic studies for more than a century and leads research in all aspects of the northern polar regions including its peoples and the art they left behind. You will study literature, culture, history and languages, inspired by leading specialists in the history and literature of Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia in the Middle Ages, in medieval Celtic and Scandinavian literature and the cultural history of Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England.
History of Art at Aberdeen is the opportunity to study the artistic expression of all periods – including buildings, sculptures, drawings, paintings, prints, decorative and industrial arts – all at a top-rated university steeped in 500 years of social, cultural and artistic history.
You will gain extensive specialised knowledge of the history of painting, sculpture, architecture and the decorative arts in Europe and North America from the Middle Ages to the present day, inspired by researchers whose specialist areas range from Pictish art, Medieval architecture, Italian Baroque painting, early modern prints and Scottish and British painting from the 17th to 20th centuries.
You will be ideally placed to pursue a career in heritage management, art gallery and museum sectors, fine art conservation, arts education, publishing and journalism, or to apply your highly-developed and transferable skills in another sector.
