Art History, MA Hons

By member456047 On 12th April 21

I did art history and I loved it. Art's amazing and learning how to read it has enriched my life in ways I could have never imagined. The one issue is that we live in a country now where our own government has told artists, musicians and the people who support them that their expertise has no value and they need to retrain as something else to survive. I don't regret choosing to study the thing I love, but I can't lie and say that finding a job has been easy with it. Life is about more than money, so if you share that mentality go for it, but if you are eager to be the richest version of yourself in terms of money, then I would say Art History isn't the right course for you.

Art History and Biblical Studies, MA Hons

By member621817 On 13th April 16

St Mary's is great - such a lovely community of people where staff respect the students and vice versa. Amazing conversations had inside and outside of the classroom. Art History department has a selection of staff with amazing knowledge, but there is not much of a community feel and there seems to be quite a distance between staff and students. Staff aren't always very approachable.

So far, all the professors have been amazing. In art history, most of our lecturers are widely regarded in their fields, and I have been lucky to have some of them for my tutors.

Ancient History and Mediaeval History, MA Hons

By athena99 On 31st January 20

Content and themes are highly unique, very distinct and profound. Course delivery is also timely and thoughtful, It's not something you would commonly see in most university courses because of how niche / alternative it seems. I took a course on Nature and the Occult in the Late Middle Ages and it was magnificent! Teaching quality is very high where the professor is knowledgeable and are skilled at piquing students' interest and thinking through asking effective questions. There are a lot of direct interactions in the classroom and moderate group work to facilitate collaboration.
