About this Event

Online open days for our MA Art & Material Histories take place from autumn to spring. They are a great opportunity to find out more about the course content, meet our teaching team, learn about our specialist facilities and get a feel for what it’s like to study here. You can ask any questions you may have.

We run our online open days in small groups so you’ll have the opportunity to find out everything you want to know, and you can expect it to take approximately 30 - 60 minutes.

If you can't find a date to suit you, please get in touch with us and we will arrange a date and time that works for you. You can email us at

You are also invited to take part in one of our weekly Student Virtual Chats where you can talk to current Art School students and ask about their experiences of studying with us. Register here.

About Art & Material Histories at City & Guilds of London Art School

Our MA Art & Material Histories is a research-based postgraduate qualification that examines the use and meaning of materials in historic, contemporary and emerging art. It can be taken over one year, full time or part time over two years. Through lectures, seminars, technical and explorative workshops, site visits, tutorials and symposia, you will engage with leading experts in order to develop your own area of specialism and material understanding. Artist and Researcher, Laura White; Co-Founder of the Institute of Making UCL, Martin Conreen; and Associate Editor Art Monthly, Chris McCormack, are a few of the visiting lecturers you’ll work with.

Students divide their time between the Art School’s extensive Library, workshops and specialist facilities, as well as site visits and external workshop settings.

Your research will incorporate theoretical insight with practical, hands-on enquiry and you will be encouraged to use this as the basis to explore the aesthetic, socio-political, philosophical and individual contexts in which various materials exist with the aim of developing a critical understanding of materially-focused artworks and art practices.

Drawing from a wide range of perspectives, the resources of London’s world-renowned galleries and museums, the MA Art & Material Histories will equip you with a specialist knowledge of materiality and its relationship to the field of art and research practice.

This course prepares you for a career in the arts sector with a broad range of future career paths open to you. You may choose to develop your career as a curator, gallerist, practising artist, writer or academic, or to move to one area of practice to another.
