Art history studies world cultures and their expressions in the visual arts. Students are encouraged to explore artworks as documents of particular times, places, societies, and individuals. Small classes allow for lively discussion and individual attention.
With a major in art history, you’ll find opportunities in community education, private collections, preservation agencies, and libraries. The major in art history may also lead to graduate study in the field or in related field such as archeology, museum studies or conservation. With a graduate degree, you may begin a career in teaching, conservation, or museum work.
