Art History 082 Area of Specialization


The art history area of specialization offers diverse courses that consider art throughout history from many geographic regions, designed to prepare students for graduate work in art history, careers in museums and galleries, and arts administration. The curriculum emphasizes skills in critical thinking, visual discrimination, and fluency in oral and written communication, all of which are essential to such professions as law and medicine, as well as in all art-related fields. A focus in art history can be combined with the minor or courses in museum studies (see Museum Studies 690).

9 elective credits selected from all courses offered in art history or museum studies at the 200 level or above.

Students intending to pursue graduate study in art history should take the equivalent of four terms of college-level courses in a foreign language, usually French or German, and should strongly consider participating in the Art History Honors Program in their senior year. Because works of art express the ideas of the culture that produces them, the study of art history involves a knowledge of archaeology, cultural anthropology, history, literature, philosophy, religion, and urban studies. In consultation with their advisers, students should select languages and courses in related subjects that treat the geographic area and time period of their special interest.
