MA modules: pathway degrees 

We offer specialized taught MA degrees in the following areas. These are designated, for example, as ‘MA in History of Art (Architectural History and Theory)’:

  • Architectural History and Theory [A]
  • British Art [B]
  • Medieval Art and Medievalisms [M]
  • Modern and Contemporary [MC]

To gain a pathway degree, you must take two out of your four taught modules in the relevant specialism and write your dissertation on a related topic.

The following is a provisional list of the modules the department is hoping to offer in 2019-20, showing how they relate to these specialisms. Please note that this list may still be subject to change.
