Apply to the Ph.D. Program

KU offers graduate art history courses in European, American, and East Asian art. Students may pursue graduate degrees in European and American art or East Asian art. Students who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees that emphasize international or transnational modern and contemporary art should follow the concentration (European and American or East Asian) that best aligns with their areas of interest.

The Ph.D. is intended for students who hold the M.A. degree in art history.

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