Art History B.A. with Grad Track Option Leading to Art History M.A.

The art history program offers a 4+1 graduate track pathway that allows selected undergraduate art history majors to begin the M.A. program in the last year of undergraduate study. This program is a great way to jumpstart a career in the gallery or museum world, securing a B.A. and M.A. within five years.

Interested students apply for admission to the 4+1 grad track during the junior or third year of study, following the completion of AEAH4800. If accepted, students take four graduate courses in lieu of advanced undergraduate art history classes in the senior or fourth year. An application to the Toulouse School of Graduate study is submitted in the senior or fourth year as well. In the fifth year, the student is fully in the Master's degree program and its course of study, completing four more graduate seminars and a 6-credit hour research project.

Entry Requirements:

To be admitted into the 4+1 program, art history majors must have successfully completed at least 75 credit hours of undergraduate coursework with a cumulative GPA of 3.5. Admission requires completing AEAH4800 with a grade of A, 15 hours of advanced art history at UNT with a GPA in these courses of 3.5 or better, and completion of the undergraduate foreign language requirement.
