In the study of art and architecture there is no substitute for looking at the real objects and we take full advantage of Cambridge's outstanding resources in our undergraduate teaching, including the Fitzwilliam Museum and its picture conservation department, Kettle's Yard, the Colleges' art collections, and some of the finest architectural heritage in the UK.
The department has a vibrant and diverse graduate community, fostering world-class expertise in the history of the visual arts from the medieval to the contemporary. We offer a PhD programme, a full-time MPhil in the History of Art and Architecture and a part-time Master of Studies degree in Building History.
Cambridge is consistently ranked amongst the top universities in the world for research in the arts and humanities. Particular departmental research strengths include the history of art and architecture in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Early Modern period; Western and Non-Western cultural exchange; British architecture; and twentieth-century art and theory.
