Only current KU undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the Accelerated M.A. program. If you are not a current undergraduate student at KU, please review the M.A., M.A./Ph.D., and Ph.D. program webpage.
The Accelerated M.A. program enables qualified KU students to earn both a Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in art history in 5 years. 12 hours of 500-level-or-above course work in the major completed in Year 4 of study are eligible to count for both the Bachelor's and Master's degrees. The M.A. degree is completed in Year 5.
The program has two tracks, one leading to an M.A. in European and American Art/Global Modern and Contemporary Art and one leading to an M.A. in East Asian Art.
The M.A. may be pursued as a terminal degree or as preparation to petition for doctoral studies at KU or to apply elsewhere.
