Masters in Art History

While many students hoping to become art historians obtain a bachelor’s degree to pursue a job in the field, a graduate degree is required to teach the subject or conduct new research. However, since this specific field within the liberal arts is highly competitive, many students with bachelor’s degrees find it necessary to return to graduate school and increase their level of education. The Masters in Art History degree that you choose to pursue will cover painting, sculpture, charcoal, pen and other mediums as well. It will also cover specific periods in art history, including the Renaissance, Victorian, Medieval, Impressionism and others that are of interest to art history.

Many accredited universities, such as the University of Utah, the Fashion Institute of Technology and Yale offer online art history classes. The topics of these courses include Roman and Italian art, architecture and an overview of artistic criticism. You can earn credit for these classes without even leaving your home. The ability to study on your own time from the comfort of your own home is what makes Art History Master’s Programs that are available online so valuable to busy students who hold outside jobs and take care of family responsibilities on top of earning their higher education.

Careers in many sectors are opened up to you when you graduate with your art history degree. You could enter the fields of communications, arts management, technical, education and research. Specific job titles include art critic, exhibit designer, gallery or museum director, professor, art librarian, arts consultant and appraiser. After the completion of one of the many available programs studying art history, you can expect to earn between $35,000 and $65,000 per year.
