With a minor in Art History, students will learn about the monuments and principal artists of major art periods of the past, gaining a broad understanding of the art of the twentieth and twenty-first century.

Art History focuses not only on the material aspects of cultural expression, but also how art reflects other aspects of society, including history, politics, religion, science, and technology. Students will gain experience looking at art and thinking about the broader issues of the interaction between art and society, and the intersection of economics, religion, and science with visual expression and the built environment.
