In art history, students develop a critical understanding of art as a history of human culture that both shapes and responds to people, societies, politics, and identities. The skills art history classes teach through visual and written analysis enhance all students’ abilities in literate communication. We encourage cross-cultural and interdisciplinary studies and study abroad. Our majors go on to work in architecture, arts management, community service, development, education, law, and museums and galleries.
The Department of Art and Art History will host its third annual reception at the College Art Association Conference in New York on February 12, 2015.
