Art History Department






The Department of Art History offers both an MA and PhD degree. Both programs emphasize the research, writing and teaching necessary to pursue a career in academia or museum work.

The Art History program is devoted to investigating visual arts and architecture across time and cultures. Graduate courses are offered in Ancient, Medieval, Early Modern, and Modern and Contemporary areas of study. Taught by 23 full-time faculty members, drawn from all three campuses (St. George, Mississauga, and Scarborough), graduate courses reflect the global and historical range of faculty research. Students in the graduate program benefit from the department’s affiliations with the Centre for Medieval Studies, the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies, the program in Book History and Print Culture, and the Mediterranean Archaeology Collaborative Specialization. Resources and affiliated faculty at the Royal Ontario Museum, the University Art Centre, the Gardiner Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario also provide access to Toronto’s vibrant arts scene.

Welcome – AANIIN,- ᑕᑕᐊᐧᐤ We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land. 

Orientation September 5, 2019!
