History of Art at the University of Oxford draws on a long and deep tradition of teaching and studying the subject. The Department offers a distinctive Master's degree, possibilities for advanced postgraduate research degrees, and also hosts visiting scholars.  Over fifty associated academic staff (e.g. in Anthropology, Classics, History, Oriental Studies, and the Ruskin School of Art) include teachers and researchers across the full global and historical range of art and visual culture. This offers students exciting possibilities to take courses and receive supervision on a wide-range of topics, and to develop their own interests in art history.
