The accelerated Master's program is for current University of Arizona undergraduate students in the BA in Art History or the BA in Studio Art. Accelerated Master's students take 12 units of graduate coursework during their senior year, and use those graduate courses towards both their Bachelor's and Master's degrees. If students are on track to finish their Bachelor's degree in 4 years and can appropriately incorporate the graduate coursework into their undergraduate degree, students can earn a Bachelor's and Master's degree in 5 years.
The Master of Arts degree in Art History provides a broad-based and methodologically critical foundation essential to pursuing a career in Art History, whether in a university or museum setting. The Art History faculty offers an extensive range of specialties, theoretical approaches, and methodologies. Students are encouraged to develop diverse critical methods and originality of thought as well as a thorough knowledge of the history of art. Graduate students may take advantage of course offerings in related departments such as Architectural History, History, Classics, Anthropology, Media Arts, Women’s Studies, Religious Studies, and English, among others. In addition, they may participate in the activities of the African-American Studies Program, the American Indian Studies Program, the Southwest Institute for Research on Women, the Latin American Area Center, the University of Arizona Medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation Committee, and the Group for Early Modern Studies Graduate Certificate Program.
