Graduate Program in Islamic Art at The Department of Art History, The University of Chicago
The Islamic art history program at the University of Chicago insists on both intellectual immersion in the methodologically wide ranging discipline of art history, and on solid training in the languages and history of Islamic studies. The program is grounded in the Department of Art History, where, depending on their research interests, students’ study of Islamic art is enriched by intellectual developments in fields such as medieval art, early modern art, ancient art, Asian art, and modern and contemporary art. The program also draws on the University of Chicago’s unparalleled strengths in Islamic studies, concentrated in the department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. Students are also encouraged to take relevant courses offered at neighboring institutions (Northwestern, the University of Illinois at Chicago) and to participate in relevant University workshops.
