The one year MA in Art History offers training in the histories and theories of art and visual culture. The MA degree requires full-time study for three terms (fall, winter, summer) and has two streams, a course-based stream and a thesis-based stream. It prepares its graduates for advanced study in the field, as well as for careers in museums, galleries, and other areas of the arts. In first semester, all MA and MFA students take a core course in art theory and research methods together, thereby providing opportunities for exchange between historical and contemporary perspectives. From there, students work in small seminar courses, complete a second language requirement, have the opportunity to undertake an internship, and complete either a major research paper or thesis, depending on stream.
