Apply to the M.A. Program

The department and affiliated faculty offer a wide range of courses focusing on art and visual culture from prehistory to the present in Europe, the U.S., East Asia, and Africa, both within national traditions and transnationally. Students may pursue graduate degrees in European and American Art/Global Modern and Contemporary Art or East Asian Art.

The M.A. provides students with a broad and deep knowledge of the visual arts, as well as study of the basic concepts, theories, and methods of the discipline. The M.A. may be pursued as a terminal degree or as preparation for doctoral studies at KU or to apply elsewhere.

Please see the History of Art Graduate Student Handbook for more information regarding the M.A. program's degree requirements.
