The Department of Art History offers an undergraduate major and minor. Using a wide variety of methodological approaches, the art history faculty develop in students an awareness, knowledge, and appreciation of the visual environment from all periods of history.
Our programs are designed to allow students the option to specialize, even as they develop breadth of understanding through coursework on multiple eras and cultures.
All 1xxx level courses and most 3xxx level courses do not have prerequisites and are intended for general audiences. Students who intend to apply for graduate school are strongly encouraged to take as many 5xxx-level courses from as many different professors as possible. In addition to the B.A., the department offers the MA and PhD degrees in art history.
