The School of Art from Texas Christian University offers the Master of Arts in Art History. This graduate program enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the history of art, its objects and its methods. An integral component of this program, which sets it apart from many others, is "the museum experience": the opportunity to study in art museums and work with museum professionals. 


Key facts

Centering on the art object, the program allows students to expand their knowledge of the historical, stylistic and theoretical dimensions of the visual arts, while having the practical experience of working directly with art objects and in museums with professional staffs. Students participate in courses that utilize the resources of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Kimbell Art Museum, and serve internships in these and other art museums.
