About

The MA and the PhD in Art History offered by The University of Iowa are awarded by the Graduate College. The MA is offered with or without a thesis.

Overview

The School of Art and Art History provides a creative, multidisciplinary environment for students of the studio arts and the history of art. Established in 1936, the school is firmly grounded in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. It encourages interaction among its diverse faculty as well as collaboration with related disciplines across campus.

Here at The University of Iowa we offer a master degree in Art History. Iowa's art and art history graduates enjoy success as practicing professional artists, professors of art history, teachers, museum directors and curators, theater designers, commercial designers, and art administrators.
