Wits History of Art has an active cohort of postgraduate students pursuing Honours, Masters and PhD degrees. Here there is a dual emphasis on the condition of our postcoloniality and curatorial practices as core components of the construction of knowledge in the discipline. Students with Art History majors regularly go on to successful careers in curating, museums, galleries, filmmaking, fine arts, advertising, auction houses, filmmaking and journalism.
A Masters Degree can be undertaken in three different ways: by dissertation, by dissertation and practical project, or by coursework and research report, or by dissertation only. Coursework students are required to complete three coursework units, and write a research report of 20,000 words.
