Tuition & funding
The PhD in Art History is a bilingual inter-university program that enables students to develop advanced research skills and offers a dynamic environment for the exchange of ideas across intellectual communities. The program is jointly administered by Concordia, Université de Montréal and Université du Québec à Montréal. With more than 40 research-active faculty members to work with, students undertake dissertations on a full range of historical, modern, and contemporary topics. The program offers unparalleled access to Montreal’s cultural institutions and exceptional inter-library resources. Students receive rigorous methodological and theoretical training, and their research projects are complemented by opportunities for professional development that may include undergraduate course teaching, curating, editing and conference organizing.

International students: Considering the waiting period involved in meeting the entry requirements to Canada and Quebec, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply early and submit supporting documents prior to the deadline.
Tuition and fees of the program may depend on your student status, among other key factors. Estimate these costs based on the most common situations.
Funding packages are generally available for students in thesis-based programs. They come in the form of awards, teaching and research assistantships are offered at the time of admission to most students to allow them to focus on their research and studies. Research and thesis-based students are automatically considered for all entrance graduate awards when they apply to Concordia, provided they meet eligibility criteria. No separate application is required.
The Quebec and Canadian governments offer a number of competitive graduate scholarships. We encourage you to apply for these awards at the same time you are preparing your application.
