The B.A. in Art History from University of Tennessee Knoxville prepares students for a variety of experiences ranging from graduate school and careers in college-level teaching and research, to curatorial work in museums and galleries.


About this Degree

Art History is a discipline within the humanities that examines the history of works of art in the broadest possible context. Investigate the world’s monuments and images from a variety of perspectives, ranging from physical examination of the works of art themselves, to biographical inquiries into the lives of artists, to research on the social, political, and historical contexts within which works of art are made. Works of art in all media (painting, sculpture, architecture, graphic media including printmaking, drawing, photography and time-based arts) are of interest to the art historian.

As a well-rounded program of study, an art history major can also lead to careers in archaeology, restoration and conservation, anthropology, religious studies, art education, and criticism. Moreover, Art History majors at the University of Tennessee Knoxville learn detailed visual analysis, critical thinking, and written and oral communication, skills that lead readily to studies in law and business.
