Program Details

The M.A. in Art History  at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln provides a comprehensive foundation in western art, as well as critical, cultural, and visual theories and methodologies.

Our M.A. program develops skills in critical thinking and visual analysis applicable to a wide range of professional and civic pursuits. The M.A. is a necessary preliminary degree for the PhD in art history, but it’s also increasingly a requirement for entry-level employment in many arts-related fields.
