Welcome to the Department of the History of Art
One of the three largest departments of art history in North America with specialists covering every major continent, Michigan has ranked among the top art history doctoral programs nationally. The department traces its origins to 1910, and has been home to some of the most distinguished scholars in the field. In keeping with this long tradition, we encourage interdisciplinary work to take advantage of the University’s great strengths across fields, including anthropology, archaeology, philosophy, film studies, women’s studies, area studies, and law.
