Art History

Q: What courses should I take during the first year?
Students should consider taking ARTH 010, From Stone Age to Our Age (superior advance-placement performance can replace this course for the major, if desired) or any of the 100-level lecture/discussion courses. Click here to check Art History course availability.
Q: If key introductory courses are filled, are there good alternatives?
ARTH 010 is offered both in the Fall and Spring, so if it fills, you will have an opportunity to take it the following semester. In addition, every semester several 100-level courses are offered in the areas of Ancient Art, Renaissance and Baroque Art, Modern Art, and selected Non-Western topics.
Q: Should students consider majoring in Art History and another discipline?
Because of its interdisciplinary nature, students may wish to double major in art history and another discipline. In such cases, the number of required courses is reduced to 11, normally consisting of 8 art history courses and 3 Visual and Performing Arts courses.
Q: Where should students or faculty go for more information?
Students and faculty can contact Kristina Wilson, Program Director for Art History, for more information.
