Art History

The Art History concentration is designed for students interested in the history of Western Art.

Students complete the foundation courses and then focus on art history courses. It is recommended that today's artist and art professional must have strong critical thinking skills.

Art History gives students the opportunity to sharpen their research and writing abilities, as well as engage their creative skills with critical thinking about art and aesthetics.

Those who concentrate in art history are encouraged to pursue internships at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts and museums throughout the region.
