Program description

Art History

The Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Art History is for graduates of other disciplines with an interest in contemporary art and ideas, and who wish to carry out research at higher levels in the fields of visual cultures.

Studying this programme, you will build upon your existing knowledge and develop a greater independent and critical engagement in the fields of art and visual cultures.

Why study Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Art History at Goldsmiths?

  • You'll investigate contemporary art, art theory and visual culture from around the world through an approach that is interdisciplinary, thematic, practice- and ideas-led rather than chronological.
  • You will develop an independent approach to learning as well as a greater ability to think critically and creatively in order to prepare you for further study at a graduate level.
  • You'll explore visual culture in all forms to broaden your outlook. You’ll not only examine the kinds of artefacts you might see in museums and art galleries, but also those that make up our everyday environment: like architecture, city and landscapes, adverts, TV and film, websites, the body, and street style.
  • You’ll study at one of the top creative universities in the UK (Which? University 2017) based in vibrant South-East London, where you’ll discover everything from art spaces and studios to foodie pop-ups and markets.
  • Our London locationmeans you can take advantage of the many galleries, art spaces, museums, cultural facilities and specialist libraries the city has to offer.
  • We encourage you to get involved in student-led activities and personal development projects.
