Art History


Students work closely with faculty as they learn about the relationship of art to fields such as anthropology, sociology, music, dance, literature, science and engineering.


Meadows art history professors closely mentor their students, offering help and guidance with classes, internships, jobs and grad programs.


The art history department offers curriculum in Hispanic art from both sides of the Atlantic. Pictured: The Meadows Museum, holding one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art in the world.


Faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally as expert researchers, speakers and authors. Connections in the U.S., Mexico, South America and Europe help foster networking and internships for students.

Minor in Art History

The minor in art history enables all students in the University to extend their study into the realm of the visual arts. As a discipline dedicated to the examination of art in context, art history is a natural complement to a major in history, languages, anthropology, political science, sociology, psychology, philosophy, religion, music or any of the humanities.

Requirements: Eighteen credit hours in art history, with a maximum of nine credit hours at the 1000 level. From "The Epic of Latin America" to the study-abroad "Archaeological Field Methods of Italy."
