Art and Art History

The study of art and art history significantly enriches a liberal-arts education, especially in a world that is increasingly shaped by images and the exchange of visual information through a variety of media. The Department's two majors, one in art history and the other in studio art, prepare individuals for a lifelong engagement with visual culture by providing a grounding in the methodological, technical, expressive and analytical skills employed by artists and art historians.
