  • School of Art HistoryAs an Art History student, you will have the opportunity to develop your studio practice while gaining an in-depth knowledge of art history.

    Our curriculum emphasizes the Western tradition, and you will analyze artwork in the social, historical, and philosophical contexts of Western culture. As an undergraduate, you will learn everything you need to know to pursue a career in gallery and museum management, visual technology, arts administration, education, research, curation and restoration, or art and antique connoisseurship. We can also prepare you to move onto the graduate level, as our program offers a unique opportunity to receive a strong foundation in fine art as you hone your research and analytical skills in art history courses.

    You will be able to pair your art historical interests with relevant studio coursework, blending two worlds to gain a far richer understanding of artistic production and become a stronger art historian and critic.

    LOOKING AT ART & DESIGN

    We will examine the art, archaeology, architecture, and ideology that comprised the foundation of the ancient Greek civilization, and how it has influenced Western culture. You will write and present research papers to critically assess how such a culture became a fundamental phenomenon ingrained in the values and arts of today.

    In this course, we will introduce you to the fundamental principles of art and design through visual analysis. Our curriculum focuses on a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, and graphic art, and will provide you with a context to engage in the art historical and cultural appreciation of two- and three-dimensional art.

    We will impart knowledge of traditional methods of production and techniques used by the great artists of our past to help you understand their works intention and value. You will develop an appreciation of their artistic methods and how they directly relate to how we understand the work as we discuss its creation.

    As a graduate of our Art History program, you will be a passionate and determined thinker. You will challenge peoples understanding of past cultures and discuss art and architecture through their place in our own historical narrative.

    What We Teach

    All art history starts from a foundation of theory. As an art historian, you will use theory to challenge scholarship, and through that dialogue, find your own voice and methodology on the way to becoming part of the next generation of intellectuals and art history specialists.

    Our curriculum includes a broad range of courses, from introductory survey courses to upper-divisional seminars in concentrated areas. Our program offers courses covering Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Early Christian, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, 18th and 19th Century, American, and Modern art and architecture.

    We will train you to marry the historical and material study of art through an understanding of artists, periods, and stylesby learning about the past to make it come alive in the present.
