I thought American was a great place. The courses were taught by experts and the schedule was designed in such a way that you could work if you needed to.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

American University's Masters in Art History program is competitive and challenging. I feel that I will be a competitive job candidate after graduation. I feel that the school is too expensive, however, and more opportunities for scholarships and financial aid need to be available for graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Students of art history at American University have the advantage of easy accessibility to rich cultural resources in the surrounding area of Washington, DC. Reputable art museums such as the Phillips Collection, Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Kreeger Museum are a short metro ride away. American University also has it's own exquisite museum space that promotes the work of it's students. Furthermore, American University art history professors are some of the top scholars in their field ensuring students receive educations of the highest quality. One draw back is the affordability of housing in the surrounding area and the lack of financial funding available to students, which brings down the diversity of the student body over all.

The graduate history department could not be better. The educational value is incomparable. The only negative to the University is living costs.
