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 art history faculty are located in Goodnow Hall, second floor. If you need to contact one of the professors, we suggest email; otherwise the office phone is 641-269-4343.
