About Art History

Creativity + Community + Collaboration = Mindset

Art is all around us, not just in museums or galleries, and through classes in art history students sharpen their perception of visual images in a world where ideas and information are increasingly communicated through visual media.
Art is often regarded as concrete evidence of the human desire to communicate. In Art History we investigate this evidence, from building to bowl, cave painting to contemporary performance art, with a concern for form, meaning and cultural context.

The Winthrop University Art History Program provides courses covering the arts of the world, from Africa to Europe, and Asia to the Americas. An Undergraduate can major or minor in art history and any student interested in music, literature, psychology, anthropology, politics and many other areas will find a complement to these subjects in art history.
