Art History and Studio Art
The Department of Art and Art History offers Bachelor of Arts degrees both in Art History and in Studio Art. Minors are available in both areas as well.
The Art History program enables students to investigate painting, sculpture, and architecture in depth and to explore a broad range of questions about the making and meaning of art. Students acquire skills in visual analysis, familiarity with different approaches to the interpretation of works of art, and training in the techniques of research in the humanities.
Students in the Studio Art program are taught, mentored, and advised by practicing artists and scholars. They develop their own creative voices through the study of a broad range of contemporary and traditional modes of artistic production and can develop skills in design, drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, photography, digital art, printmaking, and ceramics.
Both the Art History and the Studio Art programs are supported by museum and gallery exhibitions, which bring contemporary art and historical objects to support the students’ educational experiences.
