Art History, MA

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Visual Arts and Design

The MA with a major in art history requires 30 hours of graduate work.

Students seeking the MA in art history should typically have completed the equivalent of the Bachelor of Arts with a major in art history as offered at UNT or have demonstrated success in a minimum of 21 undergraduate semester hours of art history course work.

Students graduating from the Honors College with majors in art history or interdisciplinary art and design studies with a 3.5 or higher GPA are entitled to automatic admission to, and are not required to submit standardized test scores for admission to, the Toulouse Graduate School and the graduate program in art history.

Art history majors must demonstrate competency in a foreign language relevant to the chosen area of study in art history prior to undertaking the Research Project (ARTH 5849 ). Also, if a student chooses to do 6 hours in a minor field he or she must consult with the major professor for academic approval. Students enrolled in the art museum education certification program or other similar program also must obtain academic approval to count those courses as a minor field in lieu of 6 hours of art history seminars. Students entering the MA program with limited advanced undergraduate art history course work should not count on approval for a minor, as a full complement of 21 hours of art history graduate seminars may be deemed essential for content and methodological mastery. Students must also successfully complete the graduate colloquium in the semester preceding registration in ARTH 5849 .
