The Master of Arts degree in Art History, offered jointly with the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, is the only art history graduate program in the state. The MA degree in Art History prepares students for further academic study at the doctoral level or for professional careers in teaching, museums, galleries, and other arts-related fields. Students may enroll on either campus and must take at least 6 hours of course work on the other campus.
Recent graduates have gone on to work in museums, galleries, non-profit organizations, and other cultural institutions, or have pursued further graduate study in art history, arts education, historic preservation, arts management, and library science.
Important area resources for art history students include the Abroms-Engel Institute for Visual Arts, the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Westervelt-Warner Museum of American Art, and numerous local and regional art spaces and galleries. The department also maintains a regular program of visiting artists, scholars, and critics.
