Description:The graduate program in Art History offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees and is extremely active. The programs cover a wide range of areas of study delimited by the Department's fields of specialization, which include the following: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th Centuries, Contemporary, Canadian, East Asian, Architectural History, New Media, Print Culture, Gender and Sexuality, Race and Representation, and art historical methodologies, notably feminism and postcolonialism. All of our faculty members are outstanding scholars in their respective fields and are involved in a wide range of major collaborative and individual research projects, many involving faculty from other universities, departments, and programs (such as Communication Studies, English and Literary Studies, Histories of Science and Medicine, Religious Studies, Classics, History, and Women’s Studies). These research projects allow us to offer relevant research training opportunities and assistantships to our graduate students.
