The BA in Art History degree at Wayne State University first introduces students to the general principles of art through survey courses and then advances students to specialized study of ancient through contemporary periods in various artistic traditions.


Art History is a rich academic discipline. Students learn about past and present artistic traditions and practices that have shaped our world and gain the critical tools to interpret works of art, architecture, print media, photography and all forms of visual culture. Art History demands analytical, creative thinking and develops a variety of communication and organizational skills, which are ideal preparation for a wide range of career options or further study in art history or the humanities.

Art History courses at Wayne State University are designed for both majors and non-majors. The Art History curriculum offers students courses in Western and African Arts. Some courses explore the art of long-vanished civilizations while others examine current trends in artistic practices and visual culture. Students thus have ample opportunity to pursue individual interests no matter what their previous background.
