​The M.A. and Ph.D. programs of the Department of Art History at the University of Delaware provide study in the history of art from ancient to modern times. The facilities of Special Collections and Museums on campus enable students to study original works of art and to organize special exhibitions.​ The Department has a cooperative program with the Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics, and History of Art at Bryn Mawr College and also with the Department of the History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania; graduate students enrolled at each institution may with permission take some courses at the other without additional fees. To enroll, speak first with your advisor and the relevant professor, then complete the appropriate form, and bring it to the Art History office.

The departmental Graduate Student Symposium allows students to work with faculty to polish and present their own scholarly work annually to the faculty, students, and the public. Graduate students also present papers at the annual Mid-Atlantic Symposium at the National Gallery of Art and the annual symposium organized by the Barnes Foundation. They also have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty in planning symposia that bring distinguished speakers to campus. With faculty advice, they run an annual Lecture Series featuring well-known art historians and museum curators.​
