Department of Art History
The mission of the Department of Art History is to promote scholarly inquiry into the history of art, in all its different media, in a wide range of historical periods and world cultures.



"Congratulations to Art History, English major, Brontë Mansfield, who has just received the prestigious Beinecke Scholarship, a nationally competitive scholarship that helps support graduate school. Still a junior, Brontë plans to apply in the fall to programs where she can continue her focus on Victorian art and visual culture. WELL DONE, Brontë!!"
