Program

  1. I have received an acceptance to an Erasmus Mundus MA with a fully-funded scholarship, covering everything from living expenses and tuition to plane tickets + a monthly allowance. However, I really do not believe the program to be aligned with my research interests at all. I am still awaiting the decision for my first priority program that offers a curriculum that is perfect for me and is a historically prestigious and acclaimed University. That program has no fees either, however I would have to cover the living expenses out of my own pocket, which will be challenging as an international student. I would of course still try to work part-time and secure some funding at least for the second year by applying for scholarship programs (the deadlines for this year have long passed sadly), however that is nothing concrete. I feel really conflicted right now because I don't know if choosing my academically desired program would be worth the financial hassle, when I have a mid-tier fully funded option, which only very remotely relates to my research interests. I am also unsure how I feel about Erasmus programs, as the rankings of the involved institutions are quite low, whereas my priority University is within the top 100 worldwide. Would the rankings make a difference in the long run given that I am Humanities/Art History major? What should I do? Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!
  2. Has anyone heard back from CWRU about interviews? I know it may still be early in the cycle, but I know their process is that semi-finalists get an interview.
  3. Hello! I'm hoping someone out there can help me make a solid decision about which graduate program to enroll in. I was recently offered admission into these two programs: University of Chicago, MA, Latin American & Caribbean Studies (Art History focus); 1 year program; ~8 students Hunter College CUNY, MA, Art History (Latin American focus); ~2 year program; ~100 students; part-time or full-time I hope to (eventually) pursue a fully-funded PhD program in Latin American art history. I have contacted professors at the schools I hope to apply to for PhD programs and they have valid points in promoting either program. This is why I'm torn between the two. They are about equal in cost (considering scholarships and living expenses in Chicago vs NY). However, I would be able to work full-time while attending Hunter. I have heard amazing things about the art history program and placements at Hunter, but I think it might also be due to the fact that they produce a greater quantity of students. The University of Chicago has a great name, but because the LACS program is small, I'm finding it difficult to speak to alumni. UofC seems incredibly supportive of its students and the campus life seems to be really rich - which I imagine to be a hard thing to achieve with a larger group of commuter students at Hunter. I'm hoping some of you veterans out there will have insight on this dilemma. Which do you think would provide better preparation for PhD applications/placements? Is a 2 year program always better than a 1 year MA? Is an MA in Latin American & Caribbean Studies (with a focus in art history) just as respected as an Art History MA? Do you recommend one school over another?
  4. Hi All! I just discovered the forums here recently and have found the posts really helpful. I am planning to apply to MA programs in Art History for admission in Fall 2022. My interest is global modern/ contemporary art, with particular focus on post-war American art and modern/ contemporary East Asian art. I am interested in critical theory on race and gender, post-colonial studies, and philosophy of art. I have decided to apply to Masters instead of PhDs and doing research on grad schools in these months. I am primarily considering schools in the U.S. and realized that most of top schools only have PhDs and only a few offer MA. So for now, I am considering Columbia (MODA), NYU IFA, Williams, and UChicago (MAPH but it's only one year ;( so don't know if it's a good idea). I am struggling in deciding whether I should also apply to UPenn, because I feel they don't have a lot of classes on modern/ contemporary art and theories (?) Although I see 2-3 faculty who have similar research interests that I would like to work with.. I would really appreciate if anyone can give me some info about UPenn's program and any school/ application suggestions or just general advice !!
  5. Hi everyone! As an undergrad student majoring in Art History, I am now looking for publications / website that I can submit my academic essay. I am in a non-English speaking country, I have few knowledge on English media. Any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good online graduate program online in Art History (preferably with an emphasis on ancient history, but I know many MA programs give a broader range of course material). I know that Academy of Art University has an online degree in Art History, but since it's a for-profit school, I don't feel like it would be a respected way to pursue my goals. Aside from that, the only place I have found that has an online program for Art History is Lindenwood University, which I hadn't heard of until I went on a search for a school in the U.S. that had an online Art History graduate program. The local university does not offer art history even at a BA level and I cannot yet afford to move again, so if I want to pursue my second MA, I would have to do it via distance/online learning. Thanks, all!
  7. Hi everyone! I am looking to apply for History of Art MA at the Courtauld, Beijing and Beyond: Art and Empire in Early Modern China option for September 2022 and I was wondering if anyone could give me any tips for the application or just insight into how the MA is? Anything will be highly appreciated. Thank you
  8. I was accepted into both and am trying to decide which to accept. Anyone have any insight into the relative strengths of each program? Sending strength to everyone else out there making tough decisions!
  9. Hi all! first post - I was accepted to the UCLA MLIS program under archival studies! I have a BA in Art History and have also been accepted to MA Art History programs at other colleges. Trying to find what is right for me. Anyone have experience with the MLIS program who has an interest in art and museum work/special collections? I haven't really seen any posts about the UCLA MLIS except from several years ago. Anyone wanting to also connect who's in the program I would love to talk about it! Thanks!
  10. Hi everyone! I am planning on applying to art history masters programs and was wondering if anyone knew the answers to the following questions: 1. Does Case Western's art history masters give a full tuition remission and stipend or just the Art History + Museum Studies masters? 2. Does Hunter College give funding? 3. Does anyone know about the prestige of UNC Chapel Hill's masters program? 4. If a school has waived the GRE does it work against me to not send it in?
  11. Heyy wanted to create an applicant thread for art historians at Oxford, if I can find any others on gradecafe haha!!
  12. Hi everyone! I'm new to Gradcafe, and this is my first time to create a topic here! I'm applying to MA program in art history, and my long-term goal is to get a PhD in art history. I am very fortunate to be accepted to the MA programs of UMass-Amherst and Washington University in St. Louis, both with funding. I like both programs for their intimate atmosphere because of the small graduate student body, and both programs have professors that I would love to work with. I feel it very hard to make a choice between the two. I wonder if anyone could provide me with more information about the two programs? How well are their graduates placed to PhD programs and museums/galleries?
  13. Hi there, so I am currently trying to apply to an MA program in Art History. Currently, I'm looking at NYU, Williams, Bard, UPenn, SAIC, and Columbia. I'm getting a bit nervous since my BA was in Anthropology with a minor in Classical Civilizations. My focus was in Roman and Greek Art so I did take a good amount of art history classes. The problem is I want to switch over to contemporary art with a focus on social movements. Is that going to be hard to achieve? Also would anyone happen to know any professors/programs that center on contemporary art with a focus on social movements? I know that NYU and UPenn seem to have pretty good professors and courses that have such focus, but was just wondering of more. Since first finding this site I keep on hearing a lot about Boston University and Courtauld. Thanks for the responses!
  14. I've been looking into the MA programme at John Cabot University based in Rome, and I was wondering what people thought of it? If anyone has been through the programme or is looking into it as well? And if anyone disapproves then for what reasons?
  15. Hello! I was a Political Science/Theology major for my B.A. I graduated from a liberal arts college with a 3.84. I got decent GRE scores: 163 verbal 153 quant. I have been wanting to make a career transition into art history, and I am well-studied in the subject for someone who has only done independent study. I think I might like to pursue Ph.D. level work in Art History, so I want to do my M.A. somewhere reputable. Does it seem unlikely I'd be admitted to a reputable MA (like Williams) without doing some undergrad or community college art history course work first? Also any thoughts on the Corcoran school at GW? Thanks in advance for any advice : )
  16. Hi everyone, I am applying for graduate school for Fall 2020, and was hoping I could get some help from this community pertaining to professors or programs that would fit my area of study. I'm interested in modern and contemporary art, visual and material culture, critical theory, decorative arts and craft, and politics and art. I have been researching for a month or two now, but would be grateful for any recommendations of notable scholars/programs that specialize in these fields!
  17. I'm just curious, do people know much about SUNY Binghamton's PhD program in art history? Looking at their faculty, I must say they seem like a PERFECT fit for my interests (19th-20th century radical politics and their intersection with art movements). However, their job placement record, which they publicly post on their website, is mediocre at best. I am quite intrigued, but I know that that the academic job market is bad and getting worse. I'm hesitant to invest so much time in a PhD program that doesn't have proven, quality outcomes for its graduates. Any advice? Have any art historians on here sacrificed prestige for a program that feels right?
  18. I thought we could share some effective reading strategies for those enormous reading lists, and particularly difficult texts in our field. 1. How do you make time for reading with classes, grading, work, etc.? 2. How do you improve your powers of recall on various authors and their scholarship? Do you organize notes electronically or on paper? 3. What do you do with a text that you find difficult to approach or understand? I'm sure there are some great ideas out there! 😊
  19. This is a dumb question, but... I double majored in economics and art history in undergrad and am applying for phd in art history. I've got plenty of awards and honors in econ but only one in art history. Should I list my econ awards in the application?
  20. Hey everyone, I'm somewhat out of place here, i am only in undergrad, and am still planning my transfer to a 4-year institution. I am planning ahead, and I know career wise i want to go into academia. My main areas of interest are art history (especially when theory is involved), and history. With regards to job prospects does getting a double major in undergrad in art history and history, help seem more attractive to academic job prospects? I will double major in history and art history even if it doesn't, because i like both areas, and I plan to eventually get a PhD in one of those disciplines. My thought behind the job prospects is that a Community college, or SLAC would be glad to have a professor teach some classes from one discipline and some survey classes in the other (in this case history). I now job opportunities are slim for post secondary teachers, but I also don't care about teaching at an ivy league, and would be find teaching at a SLAC or community college. Thanks.

    SOP help

    Hello! I am a student from abroad looking to apply for Art History and Curatorial Master's in the UK and in New York. All of them require a statement of purpose, which is something unusual where I come from, so I don't really know how to go about it, especially since I've been reading that it can be a make or break part of the application. I was wondering if there might be someone willing to share the SOP's that got you accepted into MA programs, just so that I can get the gist on what admission's officers are looking for. I have read a lot of mixed advice online, but I would like to get a real example of what makes a standout SOP. I guess people are concerned about distribution or copying, which I obviously won't do. I really just want to be as prepared as possible because I don't think I'll have the chance to apply to Master's another year if this year I don't get accepted. I'd be so grateful if anyone could help me out!

    CUNY MA

    Does anyone have any reference of the City College Art History MA? I haven't heard much about it and I wanted to get opinions on it. Has anyone done it? Does it have a good reputation? Thank you in advance!
  23. Hi all, I know it's a vague question but anyone in the contemporary art history and theory DPhil programme in Oxford(http://www.rsa.ox.ac.uk/study/dphil/dphil-programme)? or has anyone heard of it? It seems a perfect program for me in many respects, but I'm not sure whether it's an outstanding one in this field. Thanks in advance!
  24. Hi, I'm just looking for some realistic advice. I graduated this May with a BA in Art History and Anthropology. My long term goals are to become a curator, preferably for a mid-range college museum or gallery. I am looking to apply to grad school for Fall 2020 admission. I am in the fairly early stages of exploring programs though I have a pretty good idea of what I want from a program. I am focused on modern to contemporary art (basically 1960s onward). I haven't nailed down my specific geographic focus between African and Western so I am open to programs with focuses on both regions. I am leaning towards Western art simply because I am a white woman and the African art field seems to be flooded with people like me and that gives me pause. Regardless, the programs that appeal most to me are top ten to top 20 programs, however, I think it's important that I stay realistic with my goals so I don't end up wasting a bunch of time and money on programs that I have no chance of getting into. Essentially, I went to a low-level state school (in the UNC system) and had a really crappy first year so I ended up with a 3.3 overall GPA. Luckily I didn't discover Art History until my second year so my Art History GPA is 3.85. But I haven't really done any research outside of class and I didn't graduate with any form of honors. I do have 2.5 years of experience in the museum field and I am hoping to work or intern in the field during the intermittent year before I enter school. The majority of my experience is within registration however and I have no curatorial experience as of now. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I expect I will do well as I a fairly good at standardized tests. I know I have at least two very strong recommendation letters and a third that should also be fairly strong. The programs that really appeal to me are Williams, Columbia, Bard, NYU, CUNY, Tufts, and the University of Bologna has a very interesting program taught half in English and in French. The idea of completing a terminal MA prior to a PHD appeals to me for the chance to bump myself up a bit. Basically, how ambitious can I be? Sorry for the long read, I really hope someone gets back to me. Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi guys! Anyone have any insight or comments about the UC Davis Master's program? Trying to decide between it (funded) and a non-funded program with much more name recognition. Mainly doing a Masters to gain experience while I decide if I want to push for a PhD, or turn toward museum education. I study ancient art if that helps, but I'd love to hear any info you might have!
