Art History

Art History connects the creative accomplishments of the past to 21st century culture. In an age when visual messaging has become ubiquitous, the Art History program provides students with pathways to develop critical and interpretive skill sets relevant to various disciplines and professions. The program is currently being reimagined in alignment with the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media’s emphasis on transdisciplinary inquiry.

Students take courses in topics like American Art, Medieval Art, Baroque Art, African American Arts among many others. Our accomplished alumni have gone on to work in esteemed institutions like the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum in New York City, and the Museum of African American Art in Philadelphia.
