Requirements for the Ph.D. in Art History


Foreign Language Requirements

A reading competency in two foreign languages must be demonstrated before the end of one year of study. Two languages relevant to the student’s areas of study will be determined through consultation with the student’s faculty advisor, subject to the approval of the Director of Graduate Studies.   A language examination administered within the department consists of a one-hour translation (with dictionary). Foreign language requirements completed for a prior Master’s degree will be honored if proof is provided (e.g., a letter from the prior institution).
