M.A. in the History of Art

The Program gives students exemplary preparation for careers in the academy, museums, and associated fields in the history of art. Its goal—through course work, internships, and travel—is to forge intellectuals committed to debate, inquiry, and scholarship about art. No matter their later training and career choices, graduates typically credit their two years in Williamstown as a defining scholarly and professional experience.
