Bachelor of Arts in Art - Plan III (Art History) California State University, San Bernardino



Course info


The BA in Art Plan III program in Art History/Global Cultures, offered by the Department of Art, introduces students to the history and development of visual art in order to understand art and culture as part of larger social and historical contexts.

Why study art history?

Students will gain scholarly skills, knowledge and experience in research and methodologies to see how things such as artistic traditions, art media and movements, social conditions such as war, religion, politics, and changes in technology have had an effect on not only the artist, but on the artwork that was produced as well. As in other disciplines in the Humanities, students develop their ability to formulate ideas orally and in writing in order to master the skills of scholarly argumentation and writing in art history.

The BA in Art History/Global Cultures prepares students for matriculation into graduate programs:

MA leading to the terminal Ph.D. Degree in Art History, Global Art Cultures, and Visual Studies
MA leading to the terminal Ph.D. Degree in Curatorial Studies and Museum Studies
