Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Art History University of Washington

Course info

Summary

The Ph.D. program in the Division of Art History prepares graduates for university-level teaching, curator positions at major museums, and independent research in the field. Before beginning work for the Ph.D., students should have completed a Master of Arts degree in the History of Art. Requirements for the degree include 60 credits of coursework beyond the Master of Arts degree and research capability in at least two foreign languages.

Preparation

Applicants to the Ph.D. program must have an M.A. in art history or related field, combined with course work in art history. Applicants need not have an undergraduate major in art history, but should have a solid record of art history course work. In our program we define a “solid record” for our undergraduate majors as 55 quarter credits of art history classes distributed among major fields of study offered in our department. This figure should serve only as a general reference point, however; we do not expect all applicants to have exactly the same background and course distribution as our undergraduate majors. Studio art classes and work experience in art-related fields can enhance your application, but in most cases will not substitute for a good background in art history course work.

Course Requirements

Minimum of 90 credits, as follows:

A minimum of 60 credits of art history in numerically graded courses numbered 500 and above, beyond the MA. Of these 60, at least 30 credits must be in graduate-level art history or approved non-art history seminars.

A maximum of 20 credits in related fields (in numerically graded upper division courses) may be approved for credits in place of art history courses.

A minimum of 10 credits must be taken in an area other than areas to be tested by the General Examination.

Finally, at least 30 dissertation credits must be taken.

The program for the PhD degree in art history requires a minimum of 90 credits. Of these, a minimum of 60 credits in art history must be in numerically graded courses numbered 500 and above, beyond the Master of Arts degree and exclusive of dissertation credits. A maximum of 20 credits in related fields, in numerically graded upper-division courses, may be approved for credit in place of art history courses. (Note: Art History topics courses numbered in the 520s do not count as seminars.) A minimum of 10 credits must be taken in an area other than the ones tested by the General Examination (see below). At least 30 credits must be in 500-level art history seminars or approved non-art history seminars. ART H 501 (TA seminar, 5 credits) may be counted once toward the degree as a course credit but not as a seminar credit. Numerical grades must be received in at least 18 quarter credits of coursework taken at the University of Washington in 500-level courses taken within the major or in any 500-level courses; this requirement is considered fulfilled if already satisfied during the student’s Master of Arts program. Finally, at least 30 dissertation credits must be taken in ART H 800.
