Undergraduate Program

Department of Art & Art History offers a B.A. in Fine Arts. We offer majors and minors in Art History and Studio Art.

  • Art History - The Art History concentrations focus on understanding the role of art in society.
  • Studio Art - The Studio Art major focuses on the technical aspects of creating visual art.
  • Minors in Art and Art History - Minors in Art & Art History may choose to focus their minor in either Art History, Studio Art, or a combination of the two.

Not everyone who takes art or art history courses is planning to major in these disciplines. Most ARTH courses do not have prerequisites, and many are cross-listed with other programs. A course or two in art or art history can help you look at other majors in new ways. We have a lot to offer to non-majors.

Creativity and research are cornerstones of the Art & Art History program. All students gain a foundation in the history of human creativity, and the technical process of creating visual arts.
