2016-17 Requirements for the Ph.D. in Art History

 

Fields of Study for the Comprehensive Examination

Three fields are to be chosen for the examination—one major, two minor. The three fields must be represented by three different members of the department's graduate faculty (each field is listed with its faculty member[s]). The fields have been organized under major groups (i.e., Medieval). A maximum of two fields may be chosen from any single major group. The three fields must be chosen in consultation with the student's advisor. A student should discuss with each faculty member what the parameters of each field are. A field may be modified by a faculty member with the approval of the Director of Graduate Studies.
