Art history is the study of art and architecture produced within specific cultural contexts as a manifestation of human creativity and as a valuable form of historical documentation. Students of Art History at University of Dayton learn to appreciate the fundamental and varied roles that the visual arts have played and continue to play in the lives of people around the globe.

Toward this end, students learn how images and objects, identified as art, embody, but also condition and control social, religious, cultural, economic, political, and gender dynamics. 


As an art history major, you will have the opportunity to intern at local museums and galleries, and work closely with art history faculty to develop and present research at undergraduate conferences. Majors of Art History  at University of Dayton  often are encouraged to pursue minors in a variety of fields across the College of Arts and Sciences and the University as a whole.
