Mission Statement

The Art History degree program is designed to produce a well-rounded graduate, prepared for a variety of career options. To that end, we offer courses covering the Arts of the Western and Non-Western world from antiquity to the present. Critical thinking, research, writing and speaking skills as well as an understanding of the interconnectedness of art history with other disciplines are cultivated inside and outside the classroom through both academic and practical experiences. Art History majors are encouraged to engage with the local, regional, national and international community through opportunities such as internship, study abroad, service learning, student organizations and leadership.
