The M.A. in Art History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln focuses on the latest pedagogical and professional practices, anticipating and shaping the art historical work of the future. With around five students accepted per year, our intimate program engages with a variety of theoretical lenses such as queer theory, material culture, and histories and theories of sensory perception. Our graduates are pursuing PhDs at Cornell, Columbia, NYU, Emory and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as working and teaching in universities, colleges, galleries, museums, and tech start-ups across the country.

Students may choose a sub-specialization in areas such as the Digital Humanities at UNL’s internationally-known Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. Alliances with the Water for Food Global Institute and the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts support and encourage additional transdisciplinary research, emphasizing field-specific skills in writing and data visualization.

As a Carnegie-designated Tier 1 research university and a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, the University of Nebraska provides a rigorous laboratory for developing creative problem-solving skills that challenge and augment the discipline of art history. Lincoln’s rapid growth in the last five years makes it one of the Midwest’s most exciting new cultural corridors.
