Studying art history has equipped Matt with a variety of real-life, transferrable skills.
Matt graduated with an MA from Victoria University of Wellington’s Art History program in 2010, having previously completed undergraduate and honour’s degrees in the department. Complimenting his studies with work as a tutor, he also lectured and coordinated summer papers before taking up the role of Visual Resources Administrator in 2013. This trajectory led to a strategic role in the University’s Information Technology Services directorate, where he currently works as a Customer Relationship Coordinator in the Learning and Research Technology Team. By combining the study of specific artists, art works and periods with an examination of the broad social, philosophical and historical ideas which underpin them, Art History has fostered transferable skills which now enable Matt to converse with a wide range of academics: from scientists to law professors, engineers to architects.
