Art History

Program Information
Faculty: School for Studies in Art and Culture
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Art History, Criticism and Conservation
Description Carleton's M.A. in Art History emphasizes critical and historical concerns as well as practical experience. Students examine recent theoretical shifts in art history and are offered direct experience with collecting, exhibiting, and researching institutions in the Ottawa area. The program's dual approach trains students to attain a critical awareness of contemporary theoretical debates while working directly with art objects. We maintain professional links to institutions in the National Capital region, including the National Gallery and the Canadian Museum of Civilization, through our strong practicum (internship) program and adjunct faculty members who work at these institutions. Reflecting these institutions' collections, Canadian and Aboriginal art are strengths in the program although we offer a program inclusive of western art with some non-western resources. Graduates of the program will be prepared for careers in the museum, research, and heritage sectors, and for further study in Art History and related disciplines.
