Where better to study art history and curatorship than surrounded by Australia’s national cultural and collecting institutions? What’s more, where better to study Art History than in Australia’s premier practice-led research institution, the ANU School of Art. Here, you will study the history of art while surrounded by the making of art.
At ANU you can take advantage of our strong connections to the National Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Library and the Australian War Memorial to participate in our renowned internship program.
And like many of our graduates before you, you might even find yourself working there.
Our leading Master of Art History and Curatorial Studies program offers courses in Australian and Asian art; 19th – 20th century Australian and European art and design; modernism and postmodernism; curatorial practice, all taught by our specialist art historians.
NOTE: This program has the last admit term of Semester 1 2022 and will be replaced by the new 48 unit program.
