Graduate Studies in Art History


[ Music ]>>I’ve had a great experience here so far. I did my master’s at Queen’s first, and I liked
it so much that I continued on for my PhD.>>I love the way the program was
split up through the years because, so first year is just coursework, second
year is all fields, third year, you research. And then, fourth year, you write. And then, the way the program was
organized really suited my needs because it allowed me to be independent.>>Whatever you want to do, you’ll find the
right person and the right match for you. And that is a very good thing because you
really need that feedback of a scholar that is more experienced than you are. And for that, you need people
who are not only knowledgeable but open minded, and I did find that here.>>The research strengths are vast and broad. We’ve been working particularly with European
art of the Middle Ages up until the present. But also, with new hires in First
Nations art and contemporary art.>>Our graduates take away, above all, a
passion for art history, for the study of visual and material culture, and for
the possibilities of that study to really teach us something
about ourselves and our world.>>In art history, you must engage with the
artworks, and the Alfred Bader Fellowship is one of the greatest opportunities to do so.>>The benefit for fieldwork and travel for
our students is the opportunity to experience, to see and to experience firsthand and
sometimes to touch the objects of study. Those are at times works of art,
but also objects of material and visual culture that they’re focussing on. And we consider it of primary importance that
they have the opportunity to see those objects in situ or to see them in a
collection and to study them firsthand.>>The broadest reasons for being here would
say are I feel intellectually stimulated, which to me is very important, I
feel comfortable, I feel supported, and I feel that the school is providing me all
the tools that I need to do what I choose to do. [ Music ]
