About the department
The Department of Art History is one of the largest and most dynamic in Canada. We invite you to learn more about what we do.
Art History engages with the present as much as it engages with the past. Learn about works of art and architecture in their historical, political, economic, and cultural contexts. Discover how these same works resonate through time, including our own. Our faculty encourage students to see themselves as active participants in the creation of art historical knowledge. Through course research, writing, and curatorial projects, students embark on a journey that will continue throughout their professional lives.
