Program Description

The Newcomb Art Department prepares outstanding students for careers in research, teaching, and museum work and welcomes students who have majored in fields other than the history of art. About one-quarter of graduates has gone on for doctoral degrees at other institutions, whereas a small number has remained at Tulane to pursue interdisciplinary Ph.D.s with a concentration in art history. The Department, with 22 faculty members with faculty in Classical Studies  teaching art history courses, offers undergraduate (B.A. in Art History, B.A. in Studio Art) and graduate degrees (M.A., M.F.A.), including a PhD in Art History and Latin American Studies, a Joint Program of the Art History Program of the Newcomb Art Department and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. Faculty members in the Department participate in the interdisciplinary programs of Latin American Studies, Women's Studies, and African and African Diaspora Studies, among others.
