BA in Art and History & Global Cultures

General

Program Description

The BA in Art Plan III and the new BA in Art History & Global Cultures programs, offered by the Department of Art & Design, introduce students to the history and development of visual art in order to understand art and culture as part of larger social and historical contexts.

Why study art history? Students will gain scholarly skills, knowledge and experience in research and methodologies to see how things such as artistic traditions, art media and movements, social conditions such as war, religion, politics, and changes in technology have had an effect on not only the artist, but on the artwork that was produced as well. As in other disciplines in the Humanities, students develop their ability to formulate ideas orally and in writing in order to master the skills of scholarly argumentation and writing in art history.
