Aesthetics or Art History?


Recommended Posts

I'm finishing my BA in Philosophy, and I'm trying to decide whether to pursue an MA in Philosophy or Art History. My problem is that while I love philosophy to death, I'm immensely interested in Aesthetics, a field of philosophy that is downplayed in most to all programs. I'm equally interested in the philosophy of art (formal art theory), but these also have little treatment in a Philosophy program, to my knowledge. I'm seriously considering going into an MA program in Art History instead. At least in Art History I can focus on all things related to art, theory, aesthetics, and history.

That said, would you mind telling of me any MA programs you know that are more aesthetically inclined? [Meaning they have more than one aesthetics course that actually occurs per semester!] I haven't been able to find many. Stony Brook and St. Andrews are two possibilities. Thanks!
