Art History & Cultural Policy - Research

Research Programmes
The postgraduate programme at UCD School of Art History and Cultural Policy incorporates both full and part-time research degrees at MLitt and PhD level in Art History, and in Cultural Policy and Arts Management. An Mlitt is usually completed within 2 years, while PhD research is normally undertaken over a 3-4 year period (longer if part-time).

The School is the largest of its kind in Ireland, and prides itself on the diversity and excellence of its research output and supervision. Potential students are warmly encouraged to approach individual lecturers with ideas and topics that may foster successful research projects.

Application dates

How To Apply:
Applicants should begin by contacting a member of staff whose research interests seem most relevant to their own ideas and interests. Informal enquiries and expressions of interest are very welcome. With the approval of a potential academic supervisor, students should then seek to develop a clear and focussed idea of their research topic in the form of a well-written proposal. This should act as a prelude to completing an online application.
