      The master's program in art history, 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. Students engage these issues through course work, seminars, independent research, and teaching experience.

      Students complete their degree either by writing a thesis or by submitting two qualifying papers; either option involves an independent research topic designed by the student in consultation with a faculty advisor. M.A. students from our program are successful in applying to and completing Ph.D. programs.
