Art History major accepted to various prestigious graduate programs


Leah McCurdy, a major in art history at the University of Texas at Arlington, has been accepted to all the graduate programs to which she has applied: University of York, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, and UT-Austin. She has decided to enroll in the program in the Archaeology of Buildings at the University of York, United Kingdom. Although she entered college at UT-Arlington in order to obtain a degree in architectural design, Leah McCurdy became increasingly interested in architectural history and building technologies. As a result, she plans to pursue graduate study in architectural conservation and historic preservation, with a particular emphasis on the medieval period. We are very proud of her accomplishments to date and wish her continued success in her studies and career.
