Please Note: As of the 2020–21 academic year, we are no longer enrolling new students into this program. Incoming students will still have a robust Liberal Arts experience during their time at Moore, including art history and curatorial classes. Current Art History students will continue their curriculum in the program until the time of their graduation.
Investigate and explore art theory and practice throughout history. Dive into how politics, religion, philosophy, literature and other fields influence art while cultivating your studio practice. With the benefit of working closely with a dedicated, professionally active faculty, the program provides a strong preparation for careers in fields such as museum studies, gallery work and publishing in the arts.

“My professors focused on not just the old but the new, so we also focused on contemporary artists and how art history influenced them and sometimes how it influences us. I learned a lot of stuff I never knew and it was mind-blowing.”
