Placements in Display campaign - irrelevant websites

A currently running a display ad campaign where the placements have been selected by Google.  Most are irrelevant to keywords, which have been entered like this: 


+masters+in+art+history  (surely this is not too broad)


What can I do to change the placements?  Am I suppose to select websites where I want the ad to appear?


Also, how can I find search terms (terms people have used before clicking on an ad)?  in Display campaign?


I noticed in Analytics under 'keyword' - 'Automatic matching' appears for display campaign but not in normal search campaign.  is this something to be bothered about?
