Preparing students for a visually oriented global world.
Art History has a critical role within a liberal arts education in the 21st Century. As a uniquely trans-disciplinary field of study, Art History emphasizes the relationship of art and culture to global history, politics, and society, while also teaching a variety of analytical skills key to navigating our visually oriented contemporary world. The study of Art History produces students who are globally aware, sensitive to diverse cultural contexts and values, and able to synthesize different fields of study - from the sciences, social sciences, and languages - through the lens of culture and history.
Courses in Art History use art and architecture to consider and conceptualize pressing contemporary matters, from environmental issues including climate change and the politics of sustainability, to the global economy and changing concepts of urban space and architecture, to the marketing, collecting, and display of art objects.
The Minor in Art History can serve students with majors in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences by extending their interests with coursework that can help prepare them for a broader range of careers in architecture, museum studies, arts administration, education, and public history.
