The Department of the History of Art and Architecture offers study in the principal art and architectural traditions of Asia, the Americas, Europe, and the Mediterranean. Courses are appropriate for students interested in history, art, and the larger cultural context of society. They are also suitable for students intending to concentrate on the practice of art or environmental design. The undergraduate program prepares students for graduate studies in art history; it also leads to opportunities in the business world, art museums, and galleries. The graduate program emphasizes both breadth and depth, and it is characterized by close working relationships between students and the faculty.

Students explore global history, culture, and society through art and architecture from antiquity to the present day. Trained to celebrate the broad spectrum of human creativity and expression, art history students are natural ambassadors of pluralism and tolerance, developing skills in appreciating visual and material culture to make them true global citizens—ideally equipped to correlate historical events and concerns with important contemporary and international phenomena.

The history of art and architecture program at Oregon is comprehensive in scope. Students learn at least one ancient or modern language associated with their main area of interest, and courses examine cultural production from around the globe. The department trains students to become guardians and advocates for culture and the arts within Oregon, the United States, and the world.

Because of this rigorous training in critical thinking and communication, art history is not merely a preprofessional major for future art historians. An art history degree prepares students to embark on an array of professional careers, including those in business, education, law, private and nonprofit organizations, professional writing, and publishing. More specialized careers include art-based professions in museums, galleries, archives, and cultural institutes.

The major combines the study of art and architectural history, leading to the bachelor of arts (BA) degree. The department regularly offers courses on art, architecture, and visual culture from the following time periods and regions:

  • Ancient
  • Medieval
  • Early Modern
  • Modern and Contemporary
  • East Asian (Chinese and Japanese)
  • European
  • North American and Latin American
  • Mediterranean (Greek, Roman, Near East) and Middle Eastern
  • Recent courses in other areas of focus including Indian, Korean, African, and Islamic traditions

Bachelor of Arts Degree Requirements

Students wanting to major in art history must file an application form with the department in consultation with the director of undergraduate studies. Once admitted, students should remain in regular contact with the director of undergraduate studies for advising on departmental requirements. Students should consult the academic advisor at the College of Design Student Services office for guidance on other university-wide requirements. Majors must take art history courses for letter grades and pass them with grades of C– or better.

Foreign Language Guidelines

Majors are required to complete the language requirement as described under the university’s bachelor of arts requirements.

French, German, and Italian are the most commonly used languages in Western art history research; Chinese and Japanese are essential for most areas of East Asian art history. Because these languages are required for advanced research and graduate study in art history as well as other humanistic disciplines, majors are urged to choose one of them to satisfy the BA requirement. Substitution of other languages may be appropriate to a field of interest. Students are urged to consult with their advisors when selecting a language for study.

The Department of the History of Art and Architecture offers programs leading to the master of arts (MA) and the doctor of philosophy (PhD) degrees in art history. Applications to the graduate program are considered once a year (beginning on January 15) for the following fall term. Applications and supporting documents, including Graduate Record Examinations scores, must be received by January 15.

Master of Arts Requirements

Candidates for the MA degree must complete 45 credits in courses approved by the student's advisor, as well as satisfy the general requirements of the Graduate School for residence. Of the 45 credits, a minimum of 36 must be graduate credits in research-based courses, taken for a letter grade.

  1. Thesis (ARH 503), 9 credits
  2. Of the 36 graduate credits required, 16 must be in graduate seminars, including 4 credits in Graduate Studies in Art History (ARH 611) and 8 credits in Seminar: [Topic] (ARH 607)
  3. Electives. A minimum of 12 credits of elective courses; a maximum of 8 credits may be taken outside of the department with an advisor's permission
  4. Distribution Requirement. Students must undertake course work in three of four historic areas: prehistoric-ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern-contemporary. Students may petition to apply a thematic or non-period-specific course toward the distribution requirement by demonstrating substantial work in the appropriate area. While it is not a requirement, students are strongly recommended to pursue both Western and non-Western courses to fulfill their distribution and elective requirements
  5. Foreign Language Requirement. The department requires that MA degree candidates demonstrate reading proficiency in at least one foreign language. The chosen language must be approved by the student’s advisor and should be relevant to the student’s scholarly interests. Language proficiency is typically demonstrated in one of several ways:
  • by passing a written language exam given by the department;
  • by providing an official transcript from the University of Oregon or elsewhere that shows satisfactory completion of the second or third year of the language, as determined by the student's primary advisor;
  • by presenting evidence of having achieved equivalent results on a standardized foreign-language placement test.

The foreign language requirement may be waived for a student who has completed a high school or higher degree that employed the target language as the primary language of instruction. Students who expect to pursue a PhD should also acquire a research capability in additional languages, as appropriate to the student’s area of study, as soon as possible in their academic program.

Additional information regarding the MA is available from the Department of the History of Art and Architecture office or on the website.

Doctor of Philosophy Requirements

To fulfill the requirements for the PhD, students are expected to take a total of 72 credits, selected in consultation with the student’s advisor. Of the 72 credits, at least 36 credits must be in ARH courses and taken for a letter grade. Of the 36 graduate credits required, a minimum of 12 must be in graduate seminars (600 level), including Graduate Studies in Art History (ARH 611). Students are required to complete all required course work before taking their field exams. Credits earned in Reading and Conference: [Topic] (ARH 605) or Dissertation (ARH 603) cannot count toward the 36 credits required.

Students are expected to declare a major field of study by spring term of their first year. Students are required to take a minimum of 12 credits in their major field and at least 8 credits in their minor field at the graduate level (500 or 600 level) prior to taking their field exams.

Students entering the PhD program with an MA in hand may petition to waive some course work requirements to more quickly progress through the program. University policy specifies that at least one full-time academic year—the residency year—must be completed following admission into the doctoral program. During this year of residency, the student is expected to make progress toward the degree by completing course credits and satisfying doctoral degree requirements. The residency year consists of three consecutive terms of full-time UO course work toward the degree, with a minimum of 9 completed graduate credits a term. Courses in Research: [Topic] (ARH 601), Reading and Conference: [Topic] (ARH 605), and other individualized study options may be a part of the 9 credits, but the majority of the year of residency is expected to consist of regular graduate course work.

Foreign Language Requirement

Students should acquire a research capability in two foreign languages appropriate to the student’s area of study as soon as possible in their academic program, unless otherwise approved by the student's advisor.

Advancement to Candidacy

Students are required to complete all required course work before taking their field exams. Students are officially advanced to candidacy in the PhD program upon completion of two written field exams: one in a major field in art and architectural history and one in a minor field in art and architectural history or another discipline with departmental approval. The department offers field examinations in the following categories:

  • Greek
  • Roman
  • Latin American
  • North American
  • Medieval
  • Renaissance and Baroque
  • Modern
  • Contemporary
  • Chinese
  • Japanese

Additional information regarding the PhD is available from the Department of the History of Art and Architecture office or on the website.
