About

The Master of Arts in Art History provides students with a broad foundation and exploration of the visual arts and culture in various eras. Students develop a greater knowledge of the salient works of art through the exploration of diverse approaches and the examination of varied materials. Traditional and contemporary approaches to the discipline are introduced with a firm grounding in research and methods. The program seeks to reveal the structures within which works of art were produced, how they were utilized, and the manners in which visual culture communicates meaning.

A graduate student in the School of Arts, Media, and Communications may take only one tutorial or independent study course and may enroll in a maximum of nine graduate credit hours per semester. A student may not receive graduate credit for any course designated as a dually-enrolled course if that student received credit for the undergraduate version of that course.
