 Minor in Art History

Learn to think and see differently.

The study of art history is the study of connections: the individual to the community, the community to the environment, the seen to the unseen world. The art history minor offers you the chance to explore these interconnections shedding light on way human beings have found and expressed meaning. The minor enables you to synthesize different fields of study—from theology and philosophy, literature and languages, to the sciences and the social sciences—through the lenses of visual culture and history to realize the study of art history is simply the study of what it means to be human.
