Certificate in Art History

As of Fall 2013, the Art History Department is being  transitioned to the Hartford Art School.


Certificate students are able to begin the study of Art History or to fill in the gaps in their earlier education and experience. The Certificate strengthens an application to a master’s degree program in Art History for students who have bachelor’s degrees in other disciplines.

        Ancient or Medieval
        Renaissance, or Baroque and Enlightenment
        Modern or Contemporary
        Non-Western (African, Asian, Mesoamerican, Islamic, Native American or other)

Required prerequisite: College-level work, preferably a bachelor's degree. (See University of Hartford Bulletin, Undergraduate Programs, for more details)
