Art History

Art history majors develop skills to analyze artwork from a wide range of cultures. This includes the study of methodology for analyzing art in the context of a particular civilization. Written work culminates in the completion and presentation of a major paper that demonstrates the student's ability to apply methods of research and analysis.
