The art history program offers a comprehensive overview of the history of art, with special emphasis on contemporary and Asian art. After introductory surveys in Western and Asian art, undergraduate students have access to a wide variety of upper-division courses that cover critical theory, visual culture, museum studies, history of design, and diverse areas in Asian, European, and American art history. Art History also participates in the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) program, and faculty work closely with graduate students on individual research projects.
