Art History may be elected as a major within the Department of Literature, Philosophy & the Arts. The Art History program offers the student practical, critical and historical studies in architecture, sculpture, painting, the decorative arts, printmaking, and photography. Each art is considered a creative process that like language has developed as an expression of human ideas, emotions and life conditions. The history of these arts is presented as a visual record of the evolution of human societies that can give the student a valuable introduction to the various world civilizations.
Students may elect one of two concentration tracks in Art History: Art History - Track A; and Museum Studies - Track B. The concentration programs offer the student a broad humanistic education within the context of an undergraduate degree; and prepare the student for graduate work in academic, museum or commercial fields.
