The Art Major with an Emphasis in Art History is designed for students who wish to pursue the study of the visual arts in a social, political, philosophical and cultural context as a foundation for understanding human history and creativity. The study of art history develops a greater sensitivity to art-related issues, the ability to think critically about art and history, and to appreciate the artistic expression of varied cultures and civilizations. Completion of the AA degree in Art with an Emphasis in Art history exposes students to the major stylistic periods of Western European and American Art and Architecture and provides a firm basis for continued study in the field of art history.
