Undergrad Art History Class in session.

Art History

Students with a minor in Art History have the opportunity to study the history of art and visual culture from ancient times to the present, from many parts of the world. The art history curriculum emphasizes the study of works of art and visual culture in relation to the historical, social, and cultural contexts in which they were made and seen, diverse aesthetic systems, and the role of visual expression as a fundamental aspect of human experience.


I never thought I’d have an opportunity this amazing. I knew I wanted to study Art, and I knew I wanted to travel and learn about more perspectives around the world. I didn’t realize this opportunity would be available to me – until I got here.
