Art History provides the student scholar and the student artist with an understanding of creative and visual responses to the world in both the past and the present. Art History is a lively, at times even controversial, discipline that encourages the study of art objects with its historical, cultural, political, social, and economic contexts. The Department of Art History offers a full range of courses which allows the student to concentrate on particular art historical concerns or to investigate diverse issues within the discipline. Students can explore the multidisciplinary aspects of art history for graduate study and for future careers in a variety of fields including museums, galleries and libraries, conservation, education, journalism, and research. The Department of Art History offers major and minor programs, providing students with a solid foundation in the critical inquiries involved in a full understanding of the work of art and its context. Also available are the Major in Art History and Studio Art that balances studio work with art historical and theoretical studies, and the Major in Art History and Film Studies which examines art and film from related perspectives.
