Art History


When you look at a work of art, are you curious to learn more about the world in which the artist lived? As an Art History student, you will explore cultures throughout time using the art works they created as a lens.  As you analyze and interpret art works within their historical contexts, you will discover the connections between art and literature, history, philosophy, religion, economics, music, biology, political science, and even physics. Art History builds bridges between the visual arts and the worlds of nature and of human endeavors.
