History and Art History

College of Humanities and Social Sciences


The program in art history offers a unique master’s degree based on departmental strengths in traditional research, the application of new media, and the vast cultural resources of the Washington, D.C., area. Students study a broad range of art-historical periods, theory, and research methods. In addition, the program emphasizes new media skills, museum studies, and preprofessional internship training. Graduates are well-prepared for art museum and gallery professional work, where a master's degree is now routinely required, or further study in doctoral programs.
