Rhetorics of Art, Space and Culture: Ph.D. Program in Art History

In 2011 the Art History Department launched a Ph.D. program that builds on more than twenty-seven years of experience in graduate studies. Our Master’s degree program is highly respected and our students successful. In recent years, our MAs have gone on, most fully funded, to Ph.D. programs at Yale, Harvard, Northwestern, Brown, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, USC, UT Austin, and the Courtauld Institute in London. An innovative new curricular initiative rooted in the fields both of art history and visual culture studies will provide its shape.
