Our Programs

The Graduate Program in Art History is designed to meet contemporary Canadian needs in the areas of art and architectural history, critical theory and writing, visual culture, and the gallery and museum field. It focuses on the Canadian heritage in the visual arts, which is defined as works of art made by Canadians and works which have been brought to Canada to find a permanent home here. The program is bilingual in principal.

MA in Art History

Together with the Curatorial Studies Diploma, the Masters offers a highly competitive program within Canada that supports students who seek employment within the art/museum sectors.

Curatorial Practice Diploma

The Diploma in Curatorial Studies in Visual Culture is taken in conjunction with the MA degree in Art History and Visual Culture.

PhD in Art History and Visual Culture

In the doctoral program, fields are broadly conceived and students may incorporate research on non-Western topics, minority cultural practices, and interdisciplinary issues and approaches.
