Art History Minor
The study of the history of art can enhance comprehension of students’ primary field
of study and permits them to achieve a broader and deeper understanding of cultural
history. First-hand observation and close study are emphasized. It is intended
to help develop skills in critical thinking, written communication, and research.
Since the Minor in Art History requires a considerable grasp of writing and research,
the vocabulary and technical aspects of art historical writing and research are
addressed in both the survey and in the upper-level courses. This minor is especially
beneficial for those students pursuing careers that demand an understanding of
historical and contemporary culture.
