The Department of Art and Art History provides degree programmes in history of art and fine arts and has been, since the setting up of an Art Unit in 1987, responsible for the academic formation of a generation of art historians who now occupy key posts in Malta’s cultural and heritage management institutions. Its graduates have also proceeded to research and work with major international institutions. The department has stimulated an informed research programme that has resulted in the rewriting of the art history of Malta in its Western European and Mediterranean dimensions. It has also published extensively, coordinated conservation and restoration interventions, participated in the organisation of important national and international exhibitions, and organized numerous conferences and debates.

The Department has built on its accumulated academic prestige and enjoys the respect of the international art world. It runs a Fine Arts programme and a Caravaggio Studies Programme and has as its main areas of specialisation:

- Early Christian, Byzantine and Medieval Art

- Italian Baroque Art

- Modern and Contemporary Art

- Fine Arts
