Art History

The Department of Art History supports study and research leading to degrees at both the master’s and doctoral levels. The Master of Arts in Art History offers emphases in the history of architecture and art. The PhD in Art History is designed to promote intellectual inquiry and provide professional-level training in the discipline, in a program that provides both wide coverage and particular depth in areas of faculty strength, including, but not limited to, the History of Architecture, Design, and Urbanism; Global Art Histories; and the History of Modern and Contemporary Art. Students may also pursue topics that combine these areas of focus or expand beyond them.

Interdepartmental concentrations in Gender and Women's Studies, Museum and Exhibition Studies, and Violence Studies are available to students in the MA and PhD in Art History.
