New PhD Program at University of California, Riverside
The Department of Art History at the University of California, Riverside, announces the creation of a PhD program in art history. It is now accepting applications for students enrolling in the fall of 2014.
The Art History department at UCR has long had a successful MA program, and is now expanding it to offer the PhD as well. The MA program will remain intact, and the department will now accept applications from students wishing to pursue either the MA or the PhD. The department trains students wishing to pursue careers in academia, museums, and other arts and cultural institutions.
The department focuses on modern and early modern art in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Within these areas, it has particular strengths in sculpture, architecture, and photography, with many of its faculty recognized leaders in their fields. It supports interdisciplinary study within the department and in conjunction with other departments on campus. The program draws on the strengths of the University of California system and the many arts institutions in the Los Angeles area. It has excellent relationships with the major museums in the Los Angeles region, and is closely affiliated with the UCR/California Museum of Photography, which houses a renowned collection of photographs.
