Dual Degree requirements and specifications

  1. Completion schedule: Students have a maximum of five years from entry into the program to complete coursework and submit a final, approved thesis. This includes time off for leaves-of-absence. Credit for ARTHI 5999 Thesis I and ARTHI 6999 Thesis II is granted only after the thesis is approved and final copies are submitted to the Department. Thesis in Progress: Students who have not submitted a finished thesis for review and approval by the end of the final semester of enrollment are given a Thesis in Progress grade (IP). All students with a Thesis in Progress grade (IP) will be charged the Thesis in Progress Fee in each subsequent full semester in order to retain active status until the thesis is completed and approved, and the grade changed to Credit (CR). If the statute of limitations is reached without an approved thesis, the grade will be changed to No Credit (NCR).
  2. Critical and Policy Studies courses: Each semester, a list of courses that satisfy the requirements for "Narratives/Presentation" is available from the administrative office of Arts Administration and Policy, and a list for “Global” is available from the administrative office of the Art History, Theory, and Criticism department.

Art History Distribution Requirements: Within the 24 credits of Art History Studies that include Graduate Seminars and additional courses in Art History, at least one three-credit hour course must be designated nineteenth-century art history, and at least one three-credit hour course designated early-twentieth-century art history. A list of courses that satisfies this requirement is available from the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism each semester.
  4. ProSeminars and Thesis: Taken in the first two semesters, ProSeminars are a two-course sequence designed to support students' progress through the degree by providing exposure to a wide variety of professional practices and instruction in research and practice methodologies. The thesis courses are completed in the final year of study.
