The Department of Art and Art History is dedicated to teaching studio art, art education, and the history of art and to advising majors in an atmosphere that encourages cooperation and independence among faculty and students.
With an Art History minor, you’ll gain knowledge of historical and contemporary art movements, art objects, artists, and aesthetics as well as an understanding of the artistic process. Through the program, you’ll analyze visual art and artists in relation to social, political and cultural issues during the time they were created and how it relates to our world today.
