Certificate of Graduate Study

This certificate is designed to enhance knowledge of the history and significance of art and design practices and should be of interest to artists, educators, and museum or gallery professionals working in arts-related fields who do not wish to commit to M.A. study in Art History. Course work leading to the Certificate of Graduate Study in Art History permits both focused and wide-ranging study and results in recognition of that study on the student’s transcript. The certificate is available to students in good standing in any graduate program in the university, though successful completion of the M.A. Art Specialization in Art History program will supersede the certificate. Students-at-large in good standing may also pursue the certificate.

Requirements (18)


Other requirements


Successful completion of two Qualifying Papers (research papers supervised by a course instructor). There is no foreign language, thesis, or comprehensive exam requirement for the certificate.
