accelerated program combines the requirements of the Master of Arts in Art
History and the certificate in Museum Studies in order to prepare art
historians for a variety of art museum careers, such as collections management,
museum education, exhibit design and installation, marketing and communications.
Requirements for this M.A. program consist of 30 credits of coursework plus 3
internship credits, and satisfactory completion of the foreign language requirement (one language). This program is designed for a 4+1 option only.
Students admitted to the program complete all the requirements for the B.A. in Art
History prior to the start of their fifth year of study, and should complete
the requirements for both the B.A. and the M.A. in five years. Upon successful
completion of the 124 credits required for the Art History major, students will
be eligible for the B.A. degree. After completing the remaining requirements
for the Master’s program, students will be eligible for the M.A. degree. Program
requirements are detailed in the 4+1 B.A./M.A. Handbook.
History majors interested in curatorial careers are recommended to apply to the
curatorial track of the direct Ph.D. program.
