The Master of Art within Art History from Bowling Green State University allows students to pursue advanced study in western and non-western art.


Art History graduate students from Bowling Green State University receive constant exposure to the various art processes, and have ample opportunity to see art in production. Bowling Green's proximity to the Toledo Museum of Art gives students the advantage of close contact with one of the country's finest art collections. Here the art history major may study many excellent examples of art from all periods and cultures, view the museum's changing exhibitions, and attend special lectures and symposia.

Career Prospects:

Students who graduate with a Master of Arts degree are qualified to teach at institutions of higher education such as community colleges and as instructors at universities. Other possible careers are: curatorial and library positions in museums, art restoration and conservation, art auction houses, art and law, art and business, cultural resource management, positions in commercial galleries, art dealing and arts administration.

A number of BGSU's art history graduates have, after earning their Ph.D.s elsewhere, obtained teaching positions at universities, some reaching high level administrative positions including department chair and college dean. Others have attained curatorial positions at prestigious museums, and one alumni has written and produced television specials for PBS.
