Course Information

Art history examines visual culture from the ancient world to today in a historical and socio-economic context. It draws upon many fields, across many time periods and places. Art historians analyze materials, organize ideas, and write and speak persuasively about representational issues.

Why Choose Art History?

Access to Art

Where better to study than in one of the greatest art centers in the world: New York City. Whether you are looking for an internship or inspiration on a personal project, you will have access to world-class museums and galleries including:

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • The Guggenheim Museum
  • The Museum of Modern Art
  • The International Center of Photography
  • Chelsea and Brooklyn galleries
  • The Whitney Museum
  • The Morgan Library & Museum
  • The New Museum of Contemporary Art
  • The Brooklyn Museum

The Community on Campus

There is also a growing art presence on campus that you can be a part of. A great place to start is in the Performing Arts & Visual Culture residence community. You will live in a residence hall with other students who enjoy the arts and get to know the community’s faculty adviser. As a group, you will visit galleries and art studios, enjoy on-campus art workshops and talk about what interests you.

Professional Opportunities

You can turn your passion for art into a profession. Being able to study and interpret images is a valuable skill in every subject area. Employers are in need of people who can write and speak persuasively about how things are visually represented. A minor in art history is also a great option if your major is English, psychology, communication, modern languages, philosophy, history, sociology, marketing or even civil engineering.
