Art History PhD Application Procedures
Application deadline: December 23
Students must have distinguished undergraduate academic records with either a major in Art History or a demonstrated interest in visual culture. It is highly recommended that students acquire the necessary language skills for their research before they begin their graduate work. Students are required to demonstrate their ability to read those languages necessary to their research fields as determined by their faculty advisors; exams must be passed in at least two foreign languages before taking the preliminary examinations. GRE scores must be submitted; foreign students must have minimum TOEFL scores of 550. Please note that your 10-page writing sample should now be uploaded directly with your online application - the department no longer requests a hard copy. If the file is too large and the system won't let you upload it, you may e-mail it to the following address:

JD/MA candidates do not need to apply separately to the Graduate School - the regular law school application is all that's required. In addition, the Graduate School waives the GRE requirement for JD/MA and JD/MA applicants, so there's no need for an additional standardized test.
