The Department of Art History offers B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Art History and a wide range of courses in European, American, and Asian art history with additional strengths in architectural history and film and media studies.
The Department of Art History consists of ten core faculty members whose specializations include the art of the Americas, Asia, and Europe, from antiquity through contemporary times. Our permanent faculty is enriched with affiliated and visiting professors including museum curators and postdoctoral fellows. Dedicated staff members provide key support and access to a wide range of resources.
The Department of Art History is aligned with interdisciplinary minors in Cinema & Media Studies and Museums and Cultural Heritage.
The Ph.D. program in Art History trains students for academic research and teaching, curatorial positions, and other careers in the visual arts.
