Art History

The BA in art history lays the foundations for careers in teaching, research, and curating at schools, galleries, museums, auction houses, libraries, archives, non-profit organizations, and commercial businesses.

The emphasis challenges students to examine political, economic, and cultural factors involved in the production and reception of art and architecture. It encompasses a breadth of geographic regions, time periods, and media with a particular focus on the arts of the Americas and cross-cultural exchange.
