Art History

The art history curriculum offers courses across time periods and geographies, all of which provide a solid foundation in visual analysis, historical frameworks, and theoretical interpretations. The surveys provide a broad introduction to western art; while intermediate and advanced courses more closely scrutinize specific cultures, ranging from ancient Greek art to contemporary global art.

Art history majors are rigorously trained to conduct independent and collective research, developing strong problem-solving and critical reading and writing skills. Augmenting coursework, students visit numerous museums, work with visiting artists and art historians, and participate in the senior trip.
