As an art history major, you’ll complete at least 11 courses — ten in art history and one in studio art. The program offers courses in ancient, Renaissance/Baroque, modern, and non-Western art. You should plan to take at least one course in non-Western art, and at least two courses in each of the other areas. All students take three core courses:
- From the Stone Age to Our Age: Monuments and Masterpieces of Western Art
- Art, the Public, and the History of Worcester (a Problems of Practice course)
- The Art of Art History: Teaching and Methods (senior capstone)
As part of the senior-year capstone course, you’ll lead a semester-long weekly discussion section for the introductory course From the Stone Age to Our Age, an opportunity that allows you to share your enthusiasm for and knowledge of art.
Like many art history majors at Clark, you might choose to complete a second major; e.g., studio art, history, philosophy, or geography. Requirements for the major are slightly different if you double-major.
