MA students may take 1 graduate course in another department as a part of their degree. You need to consult with that professor and department to get permission to take the course and follow the registration procedure for that course/department.
Courses at the 800 and 900 levels (purely graduate courses) are available to MA and Ph.D. students. You will be able to sign up for these courses through the online SOLUS system sometime in August. If you have difficulties, or the system says that you need permission, please contact the art history administrative assistant, Dawn Lloyd (firstname.lastname@example.org).These generally have plenty of room, and if they should for some reason fill up, most instructors will admit additional students. Therefore you do not have to worry about signing up for these in advance.
The exceptions are 400/800 level courses (see below), ARTH 880, the Practicum at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, and ARTH 890, the internship course. These courses require permission of the instructor and so you must submit a paper copy of the School of Graduate Studies Academic Change Form (http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/aboutus/forms.html) with the instructor’s signature to the Art History Programme Secretary in the Department of Art. If you wish to do an internship at the Agnes, you should consult with the relevant curator as soon as possible, and the deadline for applying for the Winter term is in October.
Courses at the 400/800 level are open only to 4th-year undergraduate students and MA students (not to Ph.D. students). There are only four spaces for graduate students in each of these courses, and so they require permission of the instructor. Therefore you must submit a paper copy of the School of Graduate Studies Academic Change Form (http://www.queensu.ca/registrar/aboutus/forms.html) with the instructor’s signature to the Art History Programme Secretary in the Department of Art.
Art History MA and PhD student are also welcome to take lecture courses in Art Conservation, with permission of the instructor. These are Art History & Art Conservation courses and therefore do not count as a course from another department. The calendar descriptions are included below.
