About the Art History Curriculum

Non-chronological introductions to the study of art are offered at the 100-level to general education students. They stress major artists, art media, design principles, common themes and the political and social contexts of art. Art History majors and minors normally begin with 200-level courses—surveys of Western art, Non-Western art, and trans-cultural artistic traditions. A large range of courses in specific periods, media and special topics in Western or Non-Western art are offered at the 300-level. Opportunities for independent studies, seminars, and internships are available at the 400-level.
