MA in Art History

The Master's Degree in Art History

The MA in Art History and Visual Studies is a competitive two-year program of study that prepares students to be broadly knowledgeable about the fields of art, art history, and visual studies, to develop a specific scholarly focus, and to acquire research and communication skills. The University of Utah offers a focused graduate degree path with a rigorously interdisciplinary emphasis, which draws on a variety of contemporary and critical theories of art. With an MA degree in Art History, students should be prepared for a range of careers in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors, or to undertake further graduate study in an academic or professional program.
