Bachelor of Arts in Art: Art History Track

The program of study in Art History provides opportunities for broad intellectual development of the University body, and nurtures and supports the quality education of those who have chosen art history as a professional goal.

The study of Art History examines specific works of painting, sculpture, architecture and many other art forms, both as expressions of human creativity and as uniquely informative historical documents. Through such investigations students gain a greater capacity for critical thinking, a greater aesthetic appreciation of visual culture, and a deeper understanding of its purposes in different times and places. Students pursuing a B.A. of Arts in Art History benefit from a variety of course offerings, which reflect the broad range of expertise and interests of the Art History faculty. During their senior year, students will complete a capstone research project.

The program of study in Art History provides opportunities to prepare for a number of careers as curators, educators, critics, scholars, artists, designers, conservators or writers. Our faculty help students develop networking connections that continue to benefit them after completion of their degrees.
