The Graduate Program in the History of Art and Architecture offers PhD degrees in a wide variety of fields. With one of the largest art and architectural history faculties in the country, the graduate program offers students academic breadth as well as intensive, specialized mentorship. The graduate program has particularly strong concentrations in Renaissance and modern European, American, and Asian art and architecture, in addition to its well-regarded program in Classical Art & Archaeology.

The graduate program is the beneficiary of financial support from the Carl H. and Martha S. Lindner Center for Art History, which provides significant resources for graduate student research, travel, and publication support.

Beginning in the fall of 2012, the program will enroll five students per year with full funding for five years of study. Students with either a BA or an MA in art history or closely related fields are eligible to apply, and they are encouraged to contact faculty in the sub-field to which they intend to apply.
