Harewood House has offered four bursaries to students on the Department of Fine Art's new masters' degree in Country House Studies, which began this year with a full complement of students. The first postgraduate degree of its kind to be offered in Britain, the course offers students the opportunity of gaining first-hand knowledge of the country house. It is already achieving national recognition and support and encouragement from the Historic Houses Association, English Heritage and the National Trust.
The bursaries are available to students writing MA dissertations relevant to the Harewood collections.
The Trust is already funding one PhD student and hopes to further develop its links with the Department through the BA in the History of the Fine and Decorative Arts, which is currently being revised.
Both degree programmes are being offered by the newly-established Centre for the Study of Architecture and Decorative Arts, of which Dana Arnold has recently been appointed Director. She will also be a visiting Fellow at Yale University in April.
