Master of Arts - Art History at University of South Florida: Tuition: $15,864.00 USD/year (Scholarship Available)

The School of Art and Art History offers MA studies in art history from the Renaissance to the present. Students receive individual attention from an active, award-winning research faculty, who expose students to the most recent approaches in the field. The MA program is unique in featuring small, intensive seminar-style courses. We see art history as an integral part of social and cultural history in a global context and our classes are interdisciplinary in scope. Course work can be supplemented by international travel and study-abroad programs sponsored by the School of Art and Art History. Our graduate curriculum is supplemented by additional course options at the University of Florida through our consortium agreement with UF: MA students may take graduate seminars in art history offered at UF and UF graduate students participate in our classes. Our strong links with area museums facilitate internships and future employment. The MA program provides an excellent foundation in graduate level art-historical analysis, research, and writing, an outstanding springboard for either continuing graduate studies (PhD) or professional work in a variety of arts fields.

Proficiency in a foreign language relevant to the student's area of specialization is required. Students consult with their advisors to determine the foreign language most appropriate to their scholarly interests.

M.A. Art History students are guided by the art history faculty in selecting their area of research after completing a year of graduate study. This program features an endowed chair in modern and contemporary art history.
