About

The MA in Art History at the University of British Columbia is a stand-alone program providing an intensive two years of coursework during which students will gain an understanding of the centrality of art historical study in comprehending the contemporary world and the history of ideas that are embedded in the subject.

Overview

In their first year students are exposed to both the most current thinking in the field and to art history’s disciplinary archive through the Department’s required Methodologies seminar. Through their coursework and research students are encouraged to explore and engage with the art historical discourse and supplement their understanding of art and its cultural context. Students also augment their skills by completing a language requirement and by presenting their research to peers, faculty, and the public during Round Tables.

The MA degree in Art History at the University of British Columbia culminates in a thesis designed to train students in scholarly research and analysis, providing the opportunity to contribute to a significant and relevant global discourse.
