The Art History program offered by Concordia University Montréal offers extensive seminar offerings every year, focused on various thematic issues related to our faculty’s current research on medieval, Renaissance, modern, and contemporary art and architecture from across the globe. 


Program Details

The MA in Art History at Concordia University Montréal offers the possibility of pursuing an internship in a museum, a gallery or at another local cultural organization in Montreal. Once their coursework is completed, students undertake, alongside their supervisor, a directed review of sources and then write a thesis that is an original and topical contribution to art historical scholarship.

Each professor presents to their students various theories and methodologies that are broadly relevant in the field today (such as decolonizing methodologies, postcolonial theory, queer theory, social art history, sensory studies, etc.)
