Students work in various media to develop technical skills and to provide opportunities for creative expression as well as hands-on practical experience working closely with artist/instructors in classroom settings and one-to-one exchanges. The program educates art and art history students in the understanding, production, and analysis of visual art and culture.

The Bachelor of Arts in Art History offers a thorough introduction to the art and architecture of Europe and the Americas, beginning in ancient times to contemporary art. Students learn about the major monuments from the history of painting, sculpture, architecture, printmaking, photography, and more by studying them in their historical, social, and cultural contexts. Visiting artists, scholars, and curators enrich the regular course offerings with special lectures, workshops, and other events.
