Art History Major Requirements


Art history offers courses that consider art, craft, design, architecture, and media through the lens of history, geography, ethnicity, and identity. Although primarily designed to prepare students for graduate work in art history, careers in museums and galleries and arts administration, the curriculum also emphasizes skills that are essential to many other professions. A focus in art history can be combined with the minor in Museum Studies (see Museum Studies 698).

All courses listed are 3 credits unless otherwise indicated

Select two from the following:
    50:082:101  Introduction to Art History I  
    50:082:102  Introduction to Art History II
    50:082:104  Introduction to the Arts of Asia
    50:698:105  Cross-Cultural Art History
