What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Arts in Art History is a liberal arts program with emphasis on the visual rather than the verbal tradition. An undergraduate degree in art history offers students an excellent preparation for entry into the workforce or as a foundation for graduate or professional school. Students who wish to pursue a professional career in this discipline should plan to enter an M.A. or Ph.D. program after graduation. In preparation for doctoral work, students should acquire a fluent reading knowledge of two foreign languages; German and French are usually recommended.

The Art History Concentration is an academic liberal arts program with emphasis on the visual rather than the verbal tradition. With its focus on critical thinking, visual and textual analysis, writing and research, the BA Art History provides a solid intellectual foundation and prepares students for a number of graduate programs beyond art history, including archeology, journalism, history, cultural studies, anthropology, even law.
