Art History Research Skills and Methods (846V4B)

Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

You will develop the independent research skills necessary for your term papers, assignments and dissertation, including:

  • giving formal presentations
  • using PowerPoint
  • participating in seminars
  • essay and dissertation writing
  • accessing and deploying different resources and archives
  • interpretative skills relating to museum displays.

The module is more practical than theoretical. It’s designed to underpin your other modules to ensure that you are well-equipped to contribute and deliver your assessed work.

It’s also an opportunity to ask questions about all aspects of the research process and provide feedback on your experiences. You’ll engage in activities like preparing informal reports, small-group discussions and one-to-one meetings.

This is a non-credit research skills class.


100%: Seminar

We regularly review our modules to incorporate student feedback, staff expertise, as well as the latest research and teaching methodology. We’re planning to run these modules in the academic year 2023/24. However, there may be changes to these modules in response to COVID-19, staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
