The master program from University of Texas at Dallas in Art History introduces students to a global history of art by way of close engagement with artworks held in collections throughout Dallas and Fort Worth. 


The intensive 16-month program is designed as a rigorous, immersive experience for the most motivated students, preparing graduates for top doctoral programs or arts careers. The curriculum comprises two Foundations courses (Practices of Art History and History of Materials and Techniques), five master’s seminars that explore a body of material or research question that draw on faculty members’ areas of expertise, and a practicum in which students design and carry out an original project in the form of a scholarly essay, a small exhibition, a collaboration with a practicing artist, a conservation project, archival research or a data-driven art history project. Practicum projects may be carried out in collaboration with partner institutions including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Crow Collection of Asian Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center and The Warehouse.
