Course Information

Through the undergraduate art history program at Mills, you’ll explore painting, sculpture, architecture, and other visual art forms from the earliest civilizations to the present. In small, lively classes, you’ll learn about artists and artworks in their historical, cultural, and religious contexts, as well as the changes that have shaped visual culture over time. You’ll receive individual attention from your professors, who are highly regarded scholars and dedicated teachers. Visiting faculty and lecturers will share their expertise and further enrich your study of art history.

Ideas and discussion will be valued in all your classes. Professors will empower you to think independently and find your own voice. You’ll develop essential critical analysis, research, and communication skills that will enable you to discuss artists and interpret images with discernment. You’ll also have opportunities to gain hands-on experience curating exhibits and to study abroad.

When you graduate, you’ll be prepared for graduate study or to begin a career in the visual arts, culminating in a position as a museum or gallery curator, arts administrator, conservator, art critic, educator, or lawyer, for example.
