About this program

Art History

The Art History Option offers students a diversity of exposure to the styles and subjects of cultures and nations of the Western and non-Western world, from prehistoric times to the contemporary era. Particular emphasis is placed on developing the student's ability to critically understand the ideas and imagery found within the art works of various cultures and individual artists and architects. A minor is recommended. Our goals are:

  1. To provide students with an overview of art history and introduce them to visual composition.
  2. To give students a detailed introduction to the major historical periods and areas (painting, sculpture, architecture, minor arts) of art history.
  3. To introduce students to research techniques and methods of critically approaching problems of subject matter and style.
