The major in Art History offered by Concordia University Montréal provides students with foundational knowledge about the history of art, while also introducing the most up-to-date ideas, theories and methodologies being used in the discipline today.


Program Details

Students take courses related to artistic periods and media, but have a great deal of flexibility in devising their path through the major in Art History offered by Concordia University Montréal. We typically offer over 50 undergraduate art history courses each year.  Furthermore, our course offerings are continuously being changed and updated to include new approaches to studying art.

Beginning in their second year, students can register for upper-level seminars, which allow smaller groups of students to join a professor in exploring a special topic or research question. (Some recent special topics: Looted Art; Ethics and Contemporary Craft; Art and Ritual in Medieval Europe; Queering Modernism). As a complement to classroom activities, internships in museums or art galleries offer hands-on, experiential learning.
