The Master of Arts, in Art History, is a one year program and is a research-intensive degree offering training in the histories and theories of art and visual culture. It prepares graduates for advanced study in the field, as well as for careers in museums, galleries, and other cultural organizations. The degree requires full-time study for three terms (fall, winter, summer) and has two streams, a course-based stream and a thesis-based stream. In the course-based stream, students complete six half courses, including one half course in theory and methods, and a 30-page research paper. In the thesis-based stream, students complete four half courses, including one half course in theory and methods, and a 60-page thesis. Both streams demand that students fulfill a language requirement (reading proficiency in one language, other than English) either through taking a language course or by passing language-proficiency test. Selected students with an 80% average or higher may be considered for direct-entry into the Ph.D. program.
