Track in History of Architecture

Eight courses are required for the MA track in history of architecture. Of these, a theory and methods course, AH 892—Approaches to Architectural History, and a documentary course, AM 553—Documenting Historic Buildings and Landscapes, are required. Students take six further courses, of which two may be in art history, city planning, or other related fields. Reading knowledge of one modern foreign language is also required. The final requirement for the MA degree is the preparation of a scholarly paper, usually one written for a departmental course that has been revised according to professional standards of presentation. After the advising faculty member and a second reader have approved it, the final paper is to be submitted to the Director of Graduate Studies for approval.
