Art History

The Division of Art History examines art and visual culture as instruments of knowledge and methods of human expression that operate in many arenas of history, tradition, and the contemporary environment.

We offer a BA major with an honors option as well as a minor in Art History for those pursing other undergraduate majors. At the graduate level, an MA degree and a PhD degree are available.
