Online Art History Degrees and Careers


Careers in art history involve an in-depth knowledge of visual arts (painting, sculpture, architecture and more) in their historical development and stylistic contexts. Art historians may specialize in a particular artist, genre, period, or other classification. Art history jobs include antiques dealers, advisors, librarians, teachers, curators, gallery owners, architectural conservationists, investors, and appraisers.

Education & Career Opportunities in Art History

Popular art history jobs include postsecondary art teaching positions, archivists, curators, and art appraising. Art history and archival studies degree programs are traditionally required for these positions.

Art history teacher. Art history degrees are required for postsecondary art teaching positions. While bachelor's degrees in art history are the typical starting point, most professors earn a PhD before employment at the postsecondary level. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment outlook between 2008 and 2018 is most favorable for art historians seeking non-tenure track positions or jobs at two-year colleges. In 2009, art historians earned a mean annual salary of $68,230.

Archivists and curators. Archivists ($49,600) and curators ($52,330) need a graduate art history degree and work experience. Many colleges offer classes or training in archival techniques as part of their history, library science, or other degree programs. Some schools offer master's degree programs in archival studies.

Art appraiser. To break into art appraising ($41,840), you need an art history bachelor's degree and an appraisal studies certificate for field specialization. Many schools offer these two programs.
