  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. Hello everyone! First poster here. I have a few questions and jumping from forum to forum has not helped. I am a non traditional student (40 y/o) graduating this fall with a BA in Art History. Since I am older and have a family which includes a 5 y/o child I can't really apply to many programs. To top this off, there is no Art History graduate program where I live in North Florida, just one at 1.5hrs away and it is an MA at a very standard university. The ideal program for me would be Emory because I can easily move to Atlanta. Outside of that I don't have plenty of choices, just an MA at Geor
  5. 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 thought
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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! 😊
  9. 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?
  10. 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 disc

    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

    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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. I am currently deliberating between Art History MA programs at Hunter and Christie's Education... I have been accepted to both and am totally torn between the two. My hesitation with Christie's is the cost! I really like the way their program is designed (unlike Hunter's general Art Hist. MA, it is very hands on and focused only on Modern/Contemporary Art and the Market) but it just seems to wayyyy too much money. Hunter is affordable and great but such a traditional program that it doesn't exactly carry the same allure as Christie's... Does anyone have any overwhelming pros/cons for either pr
  17. I am deciding between Hunter college in NY, University of Glasgow and GW University. I am in the process of making decisions about grad school, and I have some questions about the pros and cons of studying in Europe vs. USA. I applied to art history grad programs with the plan of studying Medieval and Renaissance art. I intend to pursue a career in the museum world, and was wondering on opinions about the benefits of studying in Europe, where there will be much more primary source material in my specialization, or studying in a place such as New York where there will be internship opportunitie
  18. Hi all! I'm considering applying to the Visual Studies PhD program at UC Santa Cruz this year-- hopefully to work with TJ Demos and Jennifer González-- but I'm having a hard time getting an idea of the reputation of the department as a whole. Any ideas or notions?
  19. Hi everyone! Now that we (mostly) have our offers on the table, I am hoping to get some advice from anyone and everyone out there who might have some input - and if anyone else is in a similar position hopefully this thread will help! I am currently finishing my senior year of my undergrad (art history major, modern and contemporary focus) and have received a fully funded offer from Williams College. I'm also currently on the waitlist for the IFA's PhD program, but want to be prepared to make a quick decision should I get off the waitlist close to the decision deadline. I know I want to get my
  20. Hi there, After many years of considering applying to an MFA in Visual Art, I've come to the conclusion that I would rather return for an MA in Art History. I am carefully thinking all of this through because my educational path has been long and confusing due to naivete and lack of quality advice. For instance, when I first considered returning to school after earning a minor in the Arts, a teacher informed me that I could not earn a second bachelors of arts after earning one degree already (in English). Following that direction, I enrolled in a studio program that did not include any a
  21. Hi everyone, I'm a current applicant struggling to choose my MA program and I'm here for some advice. I have a BA in art history in UK and I don't necessarily hate it. But the thing is, I really want to study cinema for my masters and it seems that art history in the U.S. usually offer no terminal MA (some do but rare) while cinema do. While undecided on if I'm going to continue study art history for a Ph.D, I wonder if anyone know people who entered an art history Ph.D with a focus or a major in cinema studies. i.e. someone not cut off by art history due to their nonconsecutive majors.
  22. Hi everyone! I recently applied to grad school with the intention on focusing on the Italian Renaissance. I would love any book/documentary recommendations you may have!
  23. Hello people of gradcafe! After hours of searching the internet with limited results, I figured it's best to turn to the knowledgeable people here for help (= I'm an international student with a BA in history and am planning to apply for art history programs in the US. I found that some programs (such as Hunter's MA art history) require art history credits prior to enrollment as well as reading knowledge of a foreign language. There was only one art history course in my university and a credited internship at an art gallery (of which I both did). So now I'm panicking with a bunch of quest
  24. Hi everyone, I was recently granted with one of the most prestigious fellowships in my country (Spain) to pursue graduate studies in the USA / Canada. This means I will be fully funded for two years and I have no financial restrictions for choosing a graduate program. I'm currently working on my applications and still doing research on different possibilities. Some questions have arisen and because I am unfamiliar with many aspects of the US graduate education system I thought I can find some answers by sharing them with you. I have a background in Literary Studies and a BA in Fi
  25. A good friend of mine is a writer and researcher in one of the art museums at Smithsonian. She's as well read and up to date about modern art history and critical theory as anyone I know (including my colleagues in the Art History Department at the university where I teach.) She has a substantial dossier of research and writing already, but in order to do more she needs to get her PhD. Her problem is that she's a bit of a generalist. Her job has meant that she's researched and written broadly about modern art. She also has a serious background in music and literature, and talks often and
