From The Chair

Insight into experience.

Students graduating with a degree from the History of Art and Architecture Department have solid foundations in the history of Western art and architecture from the ancient world to the present, and an extensive grounding in non-Western artistic traditions. Having learned how to analyze works of art and how to understand and interpret them in relation to the historical, cultural, and social context in which they were made, graduates are equipped with skills in critical thinking, writing, and analysis.

As students of art history, you know art's role in heartening social action, enriching cultural exchange, and negotiationg cultural and political boundaries. Now more than ever, we need your understanding of how humankind is driven to create and persist through challenges.
