Doctoral students in the History of Art may apply in the second semester of graduate study to the Program in Early Modern Studies, to pursue a combined PhD degree in the History of Art and Early Modern Studies. All requirements for the PhD in the History of Art apply, with the following adjustments.
History of Art students in the combined program take the same number of courses as those on the regular History of Art track. In years one and two, a student in the combined program will complete ten seminars in the History of Art, including the First Year Seminar (HSAR 500) and three seminars on early modern topics, as well as the Workshop in Early Modern Studies (EMST 700). Students will also participate in the Early Modern Studies Colloquium (EMST 800).
Second Year Paper Requirement: The Qualifying Paper is to be submitted for consideration according to the policies of the Department of the History of Art, typically in the second semester of the second year.
Qualifying examination: Students will follow the usual procedures for oral qualifying exams in History of Art, with the additional requirement that three of their four lists must concentrate on early modern texts and topics (between 1350 and 1800).
Prospectus: Third-year students in the combined program will enroll in the year-long Early Modern Studies Prospectus Workshop (EMST 900).
Dissertation Committee: At least one faculty member affiliated with the Program in Early Modern Studies must be on the committee. The chair of the committee will be in the History of Art, but students in the combined program are encouraged to include at least one faculty member from outside of History of Art on their committees.
