We offer the B.A. Degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in art history, studying the art of the past in the context of its historical and cultural setting.

About the major

Art history courses cover many different periods and cultures such as Classical Art, Medieval Art, Italian Renaissance Art, Baroque Art, American Art, Modern Art, Contemporary Art, Islamic Art, and Asian Art.

All art history majors are required to complete a capstone project working one-on-one with a faculty member on an independent study project of their own choosing.
