Art History Major

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments & Programs

Modifications Made to Curriculum: Fall 2013, Fall 2015

Requirements for the Major (48 credits)

V. Non-Euro-American (4 credits)

Students may petition to substitute a Comparative Humanities course for this requirement when that course is at least half art history in content.

VII. Studio Courses (8 credits)

 8 credits of studio courses offered by the Art Department.

VIII. Electives (4 credits)

Students can fulfill this major requirement by either taking ARTH 385  for 8 credits or by taking one additional 4-credit intermediate- or upper-level Art History course.


Special Topics: Each year additional courses will be offered on more specific topics, such as Medieval Manuscripts. These will be offered under ARTH 319 - Special Topics in Art History  and ARTH 310 - Colloquium in Art History . We urge students to take a variety of additional courses beyond the basic requirements.

Languages: Proficiency in French, Italian, or German is recommended if students anticipate pursuing a graduate degree in Art History.

Regular use of New York and area museums and galleries is considered part of all course work.
