Bachelor of Art History and Curatorship

Australian National University (ANU)

This program bridges the gap between the theoretical side of Art History as a discipline and the of curating collections and exhibitions. The degree locates the study of art in a range of historical, social, cultural and political contexts. Students can focus on Australian, Asian and International art, both historical and contemporary, and participate in intensive art history courses taught overseas. Students will be able to deepen understanding of art practice through courses drawn from the School of Art & Design and be exposed to the museum environment through tutorials and internships at national cultural institutions.
