Art History is a multi-disciplinary field that immerses students in the study of diverse works of art and architecture and the cultures - past, present, geographically close and distant - that produced these works. Students will learn to use models of problem-solving from the past to find solutions for today’s challenges - aesthetic, social, and environmental.

Two years of a World Language (or equivalent placement test) are strongly recommended for any student planning on attending graduate school for art history.
