The Art History major at University of North Carolina Wilmington provides a dynamic and diverse pathway for studying the Arts and the historical contexts in which they were produced. Art History is a truly multidisciplinary major, one where students learn and work within the tenets of History, Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology, and Anthropology, among others. 


Art history is the study of art created in the past by individuals from various cultures and parts of the world. The art historian seeks to interpret and understand works of art of many types, ranging from the monumental to small scale, by learning about artists' lives and their societies. 


Graduates with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from University of North Carolina Wilmington are equipped for a wide range of professional careers - in museums, galleries, auction houses or publishing. An Art History major is not only a sound preparation for any professional field, it may also provide a distinct advantage for entry into those fields, given the increasing preference of law, medical, and professional schools for students with a broad intellectual background.
