History of Art | Graduate Open Series

UCL History of Art has a vibrant research culture and its academic staff are internationally renowned scholars in a range of fields. Graduate students participate in our weekly research seminars and contribute to the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art and the Past Imperfect Seminar. Research students produce the peer-reviewed journal Object, and we offer opportunities for research students to work as teaching assistants. We collaborate frequently with other art history departments in London and jointly organise ReSkin, an intercollegiate skills training and networking opportunity for research students. In addition to UCL's own Art Museum, the department is situated close to the British Museum, the National Gallery, and the British Library.
