||Concordia's Ph.D. in Art History is offered through the Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Art History, jointly administered by Concordia University, Université de Montréal, Université du Québec à Montréal, and Université Laval. The program offers research and scholarship at the highest level, through training in empirical research, theoretical debate, and methodological inquiry. It encompasses the full spectrum of historical, modern, and contemporary periods, while also fostering critical and interdisciplinary modes of interpretation.
Within this interuniversity context, Concordia's Department of Art History has a reputation for its intellectually lively community of graduate students, who fully participate in the research profile and innovative teaching of the Department. Our faculty and graduate students actively contribute to fields such as: the history of photography, feminist traditions of art history, Inuit art history, cross-cultural studies and globalization, visual culture studies, architectural history, material culture history, new media studies, anthropological approaches to art, museum studies, and the historiography of the discipline.
