Programs & Courses
The History of Art and Architecture Department offers lecture and seminar courses to undergraduates that cover an array of time periods and from different critical perspectives. Required coursework for majors and minors allows for a broad exposure to the field, but also gives students some flexibility to allow for a more focused study of a particular time period or region. Graduates of the department pursue careers not only in the traditional areas of research and teaching but also in fields as diverse as library and museum work, government service, publishing, and business.
The History of Art and Architecture Department offers programs at both the master’s and doctoral levels. Doctoral graduates generally pursue teaching and curatorships. The Master’s Degree, with or without the Certificate in Museum Studies, provides training in curatorship. The M.A. is also relevant to a career in library science, secondary education, publishing, business, law or government service.
We offer a broad range of courses and study options covering American, European, African, Architecture, Asian, Islamic, Classical, Contemporary and Modern art history and architecture. Every major is assigned a faculty adviser who helps the student to choose courses, fulfill requirements, and devise a coherent program of study.
