Overview

Advanced Art History Foundation at a Tier-1 Research University

This degree provides an ideal foundation for curatorial work or further academic study in the field. Alongside their coursework, students at the Art History program of the University of Houston are profoundly engaged in the city, a dynamic cultural center and gateway to the international art world. Our degree program is designed with a significant number of electives, which enable students to craft an educational experience best suited to their individual needs and interests. It also allows them to take advantage of numerous high quality internship opportunities that propel forward their career ambitions.

The MA in Art History program is located in the School of Art, where program participants have the unique privilege of developing their expertise in conversation with a peer group of MFA students in art and design working across the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, digital media, and experimental, interdisciplinary practices. In addition to a rigorous grounding in art history, curatorial theory and practice as well as art criticism are among the program’s specialties. Students have access to dedicated curatorial spaces for course or MA thesis-related projects.
