Art History is interdisciplinary

Art History encompasses a study of sexuality, race and gender, business and economics, politics, culture and society. It depends on a vast array of theories and methods. What makes our department exciting and fairly unique is that professors’ research and the courses they offer explore a genuinely wide scope of topics and allow students to benefit from a broad understanding of what constitutes art in both historical and contemporary contexts.
