Richard Horley , MA History of Art, 2009
Richard completed an MA in History of Art in 2009 and is currently an Online Peer Review Assistant for Cambridge University Press.
“My studies, I believe, have directly led to where I am today. Without my MA in History of Art, I would never have had the subject knowledge nor depth of understanding to do what I have done thus far after university. Without getting involved at the Barber Institute at the University, I would never have had the opportunity to work at the V&A, and without my time at the V&A being spotted on my CV, I might never have been considered for the jobs here at the Press.
In terms of actual skills, I have demonstrated that I can synthesise and analyse more complex systems of thought, that I can articulate argument to a higher level and can deliver distinction-level presentations. All the stuff I got involved in, particularly with the Barber Institute, I believe was of tremendous benefit. What I missed in reading time through getting involved with everything, I made up for in practical experience and the general benefits of getting stuck in. Also, I have the brains too! Some of my marks for MA weren't too shabby.”
