The School of World Art Studies is dedicated to a broad spectrum of art history - including medieval, Renaissance and baroque European art, modern and contemporary art, ancient art, and African art. The School brings together staff, students, and researchers interested in the history of art as well as archaeology, anthropology, cultural heritage, and museum studies.

The School ranked 1st for world-leading research in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise of UK universities, and achieved the joint highest student satisfaction rating for an art history department, according to the 2009 National Student Survey. Its home is in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, designed by Norman Foster and set next to woodland at the edge of the UEA campus. Inside this magnificent structure, our seminar rooms, offices, common areas, and study spaces adjoin the renowned Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection of world art and the Sainsbury Research Unit library – making the Sainsbury Centre ‘perhaps the greatest resource of its type on any British campus’ (Times Good University Guide, 2005).
