Charlotte Nichols, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Art History

Department of Communication and the Arts

Dr. Nichols specializes in Italian Renaissance art, as well as the history of dress and art in the Renaissance period.


I have taught undergraduate courses in art history at Seton Hall University since 1990 and also teach for the M.A. in Museum Professions program. I received my Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts (NYU), with a specialization in Italian Renaissance art. I lived for many years in Italy while researching my dissertation on the Renaissance in Naples, and I am a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome. My scholarly interests now include the history of dress and art in the Renaissance period.
