Art History- Undergraduate
The Art History program is designed to provide students with a broadly based academic and theoretical
knowledge of the history of art. A substantial number of art history classes covering such diverse areas as
African, African-American, Ancient through Medieval, Renaissance through Baroque, and Modern, are taught. These
areas are supported by art theory and criticism courses which are structured to develop special professional
sensibilities for thinking, progressive artists/historians/critics who seek a fuller understanding of their
careers in the visual arts.
The program is intended to enrich the department's various studio disciplines, although students may elect
to major or minor in Art History and earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. They may also choose to supplement
departmental offerings with appropriate courses in anthropology or the humanities. The program's large slide
inventory and the ample collection of the Cunningham Memorial Library offer teaching materials and research
capabilities for scholars.
