Art History Minor

Art History Students in the Diesgno Italia program

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.
