Art History Requirements

Art History Majors

Minimum 10 courses
(Maximum 14), including:

The Art History Concentration Seminar is for fourth-year students (mandatory for majors). Normally, it will be expected that the remaining three courses be taken as seminars offered by the Department of Visual Arts (History). Exceptions will be granted on an individual basis for students to substitute pertinent courses in other disciplines. Students may develop such sequences in consultation with their advisor after a written proposal has been reviewed and accepted by the Chair. Many art history majors choose Study Abroad as an integral part of their major, a decision enthusiastically supported and guided by the department.

Art History Minors

Minimum 6 courses
(Maximum 14), including:

The art history minor is available to students in any major, including the studio art major. The art history minor provides students with the opportunity to explore the history of visual images. The Concentration Seminar is also available to art history minors as an elective.
