The Department of Art History's award-winning faculty produce cutting edge research and teach innovative classes which prepare our students to thrive in contemporary society. The department encourages the study of the global history of art, and material and visual culture, from a wide range of periods and a variety of world cultures. Housed in the Chazen Museum of Art, the Department works closely with the Museum to provide students with opportunities to gain training in all facets of museum work, including exhibition training.
Our students distinguish themselves in countless ways. Many are double-majors, with their second major coming from all across the arts, sciences, and humanities.
