The minor in Art History provides students with a broad introduction to the history of Western and Eastern art, as well as the opportunity for more specialized study in one or two fields, from ancient to contemporary. Specialized study may concentrate upon one region of the world (i.e. Italian art) or one period (i.e. medieval). A student should seek the advice of her/his minor adviser on course selections. The study of art history develops a student's visual acuity by providing a critical understanding of visual culture in a diversity of societies around the world. Students learn to understand art within the contexts of religion, politics, philosophy, culture, technology, society, and gender. A minor in Art History can be of particular interest for students pursuing careers in art, art education, history, anthropology, archaeology, classics, English, foreign literature, cultural studies, international business, and arts administration.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
