SUMMARY

Choosing to study Art History is a valuable choice and ordinarily a necessary first step for students choosing to pursue a career as a curator, a teacher, or an art publisher. Interestingly, art history is fairly common ranking as the 119th most popular area of study. In the last year, there were 2,784 art history degrees conferred. In-state tuition for art history at private institutions is, on average, 4.6 times more spendy than their public counterparts.

There are 411 institutions that offer this degree. 411 institutions is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you are hoping to surround yourself with other art history students, look at universities in New York which have more undergraduates admitted to art history than any other state. More generally, the top region to study art history is in the Mid East region with Columbia University in the City of New York, New York University, and University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to major in art history is the Ivy League with Yale University, Barnard College, and Columbia University in the City of New York representing the conference. From our comprehensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best university for art history is Stanford University.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There are tons more perspectives to think about when choosing school. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely sway your choice of where to go to school. Here at authority.org, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which art history college is home to the top college campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are very interested in which college boasts the finest campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more to compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the schools with the best student life here and from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for art history is Barnard College. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our decisions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant deciding factor in your decision on where to go to school, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be the most expensive university for art history, at least for out of state attendance. We have a list of the most expensive colleges that might put the expense of Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that art history is the 12th most expensive major in America, with an average bill of $54,300. On a broader scale, the most costly state for art history in the nation is Rhode Island with expenses at the main college, Brown University, of $57,112. Even more broadly, the most costly region for art history is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Boston College with a cost of $56,780, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for art history is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by University of Colorado Boulder with a cost of $34,930, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. On the bright side, the most affordable college for art history is The University of Texas at Austin. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying around $11,400 for a degree in art history. That price grows by a lot to an average of $29,700 for the out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our choice for the school constituting the best value for art history: Stanford University. Here you will find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value overall. With that said, this list is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for art history students vary a lot, but within two-years of leaving college graduates will often earn in the neighborhood of $48,900. While there can be a lot of variation in pay; top positions can make up to $89,700. Even straight out of college, the minimum earning jobs within the art history space earn $27,000, which could be worse. The top earning grads for art history come from Stanford University and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of art history ranks subpar, coming within the 48th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for art history is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Art History major only ranks in the 35th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 49th percentile. White students make up the largest share at 62% of scholars majoring in art history. Additionally, 82% of undergrads pursuing an art history degree are women.

The median ranking of art history professors is 4 stars, a ranking which is exactly the average across every major; this is a fine. If you want the most popular art history instructor in the nation, consider looking up Jason Sampson from J Sargeant Reynolds Community College. This might be shocking, but the highest ranked instructors for art history according to students are found at Kennesaw State University. As we including data beyond basic rankings we find that the school possessing the best professors for art history is Stanford University. You will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest examples of instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for art history is Stanford University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have an extensive page for the hardest colleges to get into. Although, we do hope you understand that considering college with context primarily built on superlatives might create problems. We encourage you to explore our other pages on individual topics and explore some of our background articles on beneficial details to look for as your college search continues.
