Art and Design Department
The study of art history explores how societies and individuals have used the visual arts to convey the ideas and values that were important to them.
The program offers students a broad-based knowledge of the visual arts from a global perspective while learning historical, cultural, and theoretical approaches to works of art. Understanding the roles of visual media across diverse cultures and historical periods prepares students with a respect for context and a global outlook that are necessary in our changing world. The discipline emphasizes the transferable skills of critical thinking, writing, and oral communication that are the foundations of any profession.
Students may pursue a BA in Art History or Art History Minor
