History of Art & Architecture: MA
from the Bulletin
The MA program in History of Art & Architecture provides a scholarly grounding in the history of art, architecture, and material culture. Students are exposed to a broad range of methods and materials by a diverse, collegial faculty. The rigor and global reach of the curriculum are reinforced by the required Comprehensive Examination. Offering a foundation for a career either in academia or the museum world, to which the Department of History of Art & Architecture has unusually strong links, our program is intended to nurture independent inquiry. Applicants must have completed a two-semester survey course and three additional courses in history of art & architecture as well as two years of college-level work in a modern foreign language.
