Graduate – M.A.
Masters of Arts Degree in Art History
The Masters of Arts Degree in Art History offers the opportunity for advanced study in Art History and Criticism. Because of San Antonio’s unique location and faculty, the emphasis of this program is on Art of the United States, Latin America and Spain, including Contemporary US Art and Criticism, Contemporary Mexican American, Latin American Colonial to Modern, Pre-Columbian, and Spanish art, as well as the cultural and artistic traditions of San Antonio’s immediate region. The MA in Art History is designed to prepare students for careers as teachers of Art History at the junior community college level and other arts related professions, or as a basis for entering doctoral studies elsewhere. Students in the MA program work closely with individual faculty members and members of San Antonio’s arts community during the course of study.
