The Department of Art History and Archaeology’s graduate program provides students with enhanced support and assistance in the job search process, including a regular offering of advanced workshops on the academic and non-academic job markets.
The national visibility of our graduate program, the excellence of our students and the department’s commitment to mentorship have all contributed to our excellent job placement record. Placements are evenly split across academic and cultural institutions. Recent alumni are currently employed at both public and private research universities, as well as smaller liberal arts colleges. Students from the graduate program have also gone on to work at museums and galleries, becoming curators and museum educators at the Portland Museum of Art, Oberlin College, Rollins College, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art and various museums within the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.
