Graduate Studies

Art History and Communication Studies (AHCS) graduate programs are shaped by the cutting-edge research of the department’s world-class faculty. They are further supported by professors and research initiatives within the department (including Media@McGill) and across a range of departments and programs across the university as well as by the vast resources at McGill and in the Montréal and other provincial and national arts and communications communities.

AHCS graduate programs include PhD programs and MA programs in Art History and in Communication Studies as well as options for joint PhD and MA programs in Gender and Women’s Studies through the Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF). To date there are no joint graduate programs between Art History and Communication Studies, but students work across the two areas by taking seminars and working with professors in both areas if they so desire
