The Department of the History of Art and Architecture (HA&A) offers a PhD program, a free-standing MA program, and an interdisciplinary graduate certificate in museum studies. The Department's free-standing MA program awards a terminal MA degree (a separate application is required for admission to the PhD program).
Students may apply and be admitted to the PhD program with or without having already completed an MA. Students entering the PhD program with an MA already in hand may petition to waive some coursework requirements to more quickly progress through the PhD program.
Applications to the graduate program are considered once a year beginning on January 15 for the following fall term. Applications and supporting documents, including Graduate Record Examinations scores, must be received by January 15.
The Department of the History of Art and Architecture now offers fully-funded PhD fellowships for competitive candidates. Please contact the Director of Graduate Studies for further details.
