BA in Art with a Concentration in Art History

Degree Requirements
The Art History concentration provides an opportunity within the liberal arts framework for students to develop an understanding of the history of western and world art from prehistory to postmodernism.  A wide variety of courses are offered including traditional art history surveys, upper-level courses in topics ranging from Renaissance and Baroque, Women in Art, African Art, Asian Art, Writing About Art, Public Art and Media Culture, Art Criticism, Modern Art and Contemporary Art. 
The Art History concentration culminates in a year-long Senior Capstone experience.  The first semester of the senior year involves working closely with a professor to research and develop a selected topic in Art History for a thesis.  The second semester of the senior year is focused on writing the thesis and preparing for a public presentation of the thesis.

The Art Department's Visiting Artist Series as well as our regular exhibitions of renowned Artists in our various galleries expose Art Majors to current trends in regional, national, and international art.  Students can work one-on-one with internationally-renowned, art professionals such as artists, curators, art historians, and critics to gain feedback and to make valuable contacts.
