Explore past and present visual culture with art history courses that span from prehistoric ages through the modern era.
The art department's newest offering, a B.A. in Studio Arts, opens the door to a vast choice of potential careers and is excellent preparation for the advanced study in many areas.
Study Art History. Learn about the world around you and gain the tools to succeed in it. Choose from numerous courses covering a wide range of time periods, artistic techniques, and world cultures. While studying Art History exposes you to new perspectives, it also focuses on practical skills with emphasis on writing, research and critical analysis. Art History courses provide a flexible, yet useful basis for a liberal arts education that can be applied to any career path.
