Degree Requirements

Floyd Martin, coordinator

The B.A. in art/art history track is for students especially interested in the history, theory, and criticism of the visual arts. The major will provide a solid foundation for students who wish to pursue the master or Ph.D. programs in art history that are necessary for careers in university teaching, research, and the museum field. For those pursuing other interests, the major in art history, which is decidedly a liberal arts field, encourages development of analytical and critical viewing and writing skills useful in such careers as law, medicine, and business.

Students should plan carefully and check the long-range schedule of course offerings with the art history coordinator if interested in a particular course. ARHA 2310 - Survey of the History of Art I  and ARHA 2311 - Survey of the History of Art II  are offered fall and spring. Upper-level courses are normally offered once every two years.
