The Art History B.A. program provides students with a multicultural and global awareness of art and culture, as well as the useful daily skill of visual literacy–not just of artwork, but also of advertising, architectural structures, and popular culture. Course offerings cover a wide range of subjects within global contexts, encouraging students to become responsible citizens through an understanding of the aesthetic, cultural, and ethical issues present in our complex contemporary world. The B.A. in Art History offers a platform for students to examine, identify, and appreciate the visual arts and cultural production from prehistory to the present in multiple regions and contexts.
