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
courses cover diverse areas including Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Modern,
and Contemporary Arts. These
areas are supported by art theory and criticism courses which are structured to develop special professional
sensibilities for those 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
image library and the ample collection of the Cunningham Memorial Library offer teaching materials and research
capabilities for scholars.
