The two-year Art History program of Tufts University focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the history of art and architecture with a perspective informed by debates on globalization and visual culture.


About the Program

The Art History program of Tufts University, offered by the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, is designed to provide a broad historical and theoretical understanding of the visual arts, in addition to developing critical thinking and methodological skills. You'll engage with these issues through course work, seminars, independent research, and teaching experience.

You'll complete your degree either by writing a thesis or by submitting two qualifying papers; either option involves an independent research topic designed in consultation with your faculty advisor. The small size of our program gives you the opportunity to get to know you cohort and to enjoy close working relationships with our faculty. After completing the MA, our graduates have a strong record of placement in jobs and top doctoral programs.
