Since its inception nearly 20 years ago, Binghamton University’s Department of Art History program has been seen as a pioneering site of new methodologies and approaches to the field of art history. With focus in the history and theory of art and architecture, the program attempts to generate broadly applicable scholarship and understanding.

Offering graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts (MA) and doctorate degrees in art history, our department gives students the opportunity to undertake cross-disciplinary, innovative studies, with stress on the development of critical theoretical and historical perspectives in relation to the visual arts, photography, architecture, planning and the wider built environment, at local, national and global levels. A combined MA/PhD track is also available.

Our program is highly interdisciplinary. Students often take courses in multiple related fields to provide the most well-rounded and rigorous examination of research. This sort of intersectional scholarship is supported emphatically be department faculty, many of whom are invested in multiple fields and modes of study as well.

This broad and inclusive sense of scholarship extends to our department’s contributions to university life. In addition to organizing the department’s cross-disciplinary lectures, workshop and symposia, faculty and students are actively involved in teaching and conference activities of other interdisciplinary centers and programs.
