Overview

The study of art develops visual and critical abilities, and trains students to relate direct observation to appropriate historical, political, social and environmental contexts, and to use their experiences in languages, literature, philosophy, theology, and a variety of other fields of study. Most courses in the Art History program from Georgetown University emphasize the study of original works of art in Washington area museums, and many involve intensive research and writing experience.

Learning Goals
