Program overview

The MA in Art History trains students to think critically about the visual and material culture that is such an important aspect of our lives. Students in the program work alongside faculty members engaged in a wide variety of research initiatives and gain experience as teaching assistants. Montreal’s wealth of museums (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée d'Art Contemporain) cultural institutions (McCord Museum) and cutting-edge art spaces (L'Arsenal, Phi Centre) offer countless opportunities to cultivate an individualized research focus. Together, coursework and a rich program of extracurricular activities enable students to create their own portfolios of exhibition reviews, journal articles and curatorial projects. Join a vibrant cohort of students, scholars and professionals who are pursuing their graduate studies on a full or part-time basis. The size of our program is one of its assets - large enough to provide a diverse selection of seminars, but small enough for students to actively participate in dialogue and debate.
