Major Requirements

Art history majors are required to complete 33 credits in the department. You must receive a grade of C or better for the class to count toward the major.

Introductory Classes: We offer three introductory courses that count for this requirement: 01:082:105, 01:082:106, and 01:082:107. You must take two out of these three. Students may use a 4 or 5 on the AP art history examination to place out of these two classes.

Upper-Level Distribution Requirements (Chronological and Geographical): Students must take seven advanced-level courses that are distributed such that at least one is taken in each of four of the following chronological periods: prehistory to 1400, 1400 to 1700, 1700 to 1900, and 1900 to present. Students must take three courses out of the five geographical regions: Africa, Asia, Europe and the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Histories of Cross-Cultural Exchange. Individual courses may be used to meet two, but no more than two, of the seven upper-level distribution requirements. In the course list maintained by the department, the requirements that each course can be used to meet are clearly listed. Note: 200, 300, and 400 levels count as upper-level courses for this part of the major. 

Capstone Seminar or Approaches: You must take 01:082:491, 01:082:492, or 01:082:403. 491 and 492 are the capstone seminars for majors; the subjects vary, but in every case you will be asked to conduct original research, give an oral presentation, and write a research paper. 403 is the Approaches class, in which you will learn about the methods used by art historians in their work. Students who wish to go to graduate school in art history should take Approaches. Students are encouraged to take more than one capstone seminar. If you take more than one capstone seminar, you may use the second one in the chronological and geographical distribution. 

Professional Opportunities and On-Site Learning: You must complete one of the following: an internship, a study abroad class, a Curatorial Training class, or a Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies course. If you studied abroad outside of Rutgers, please consult the undergraduate program director who will make the adjustment in Degree Navigator.
