What you will learn in this program
Art History scholars ask questions such as: What is the earliest known work of art? Why is the Renaissance period important to the development of Western art? How are new technologies transforming art?
Art History analyzes art and architecture across a range of historical, geopolitical and cultural contexts. This program will help you develop conceptual understanding of art history and design that may include traditional media such as painting, sculpture, architecture and photography along with innovations in the creative use of new technologies, indigenous media, performance art, as well as feminist and postcolonial approaches to visual culture and art practices. During the course of your studies, you’ll develop your critical analysis, writing and research skills and can integrate courses from a variety of areas such as classics, film, religion or history.
As a graduate of the Art History program you’ll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as the non-profit sector, public museums and private art galleries. A degree in Art History can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
