Art History

Thinking Critically about Creativity

An art history minor will train you to understand patterns and visual shifts throughout history and build an appreciation for the insights of the creative mind. Our small classes, led by a faculty of working artists and art historians, offer a foundation in the mechanics of the visual arts, as well as a detailed look at the full sweep of artistic periods and movements. Art history is offered as a minor only.
