BA in Art History

The Bachelor's Degree in Art History

The Art History and Visual Studies Program trains students to develop historically informed approaches to art and visual culture within the context of an interdisciplinary humanities education. Through lecture classes, discussion-based seminars, internships, and independent study, students learn multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of art and visual culture and gain essential skills of visual analysis, critical reasoning and effective communication. Students will be prepared for a range of entry-level positions in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors, or to undertake graduate study in an academic or professional program.
