The program encompasses a wide geographical and chronological range. Within the graduate offerings, diversity of method and approach is also evident, and it reveals itself in the varied backgrounds of faculty, who have degrees in the history of art, as well as in classics, anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, literature and medieval studies. Several faculty are involved in archaeological and exhibition projects, so that students with these interests are able to obtain hands-on experience. The faculty is aware of the need to provide not only solid foundations in the discipline itself, but also thorough training in related fields. Art History seeks to understand the context of art throughout its duration, and to do so demands the training of reflective and broadly educated scholars.

The MA in Art History is a two-year, in-residence degree program for the highly motivated student with a strong background in Art History and its methods. Graduate students are expected to accomplish a substantial amount of seminar work, and in their second of year of study, engage in researching and writing a thesis, an original contribution to scholarship. The MA may be pursued as a terminal degree, or as preparation to continue with doctoral studies. Students may pursue studies in general or specialized tracks.
