The School of Art and Art History (SAAH) teaches the technical processes of art, methods of analyzing and criticizing visual culture and the diverse histories of art. We educate students to think critically and conceptually, to express themselves creatively, to articulate their ideas clearly and to make significant contributions to the society in which they live. 


Our faculty promote these qualities through their creative activity, scholarship and public service.

The School of Art and Art History grants the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of arts (BA) and bachelor of fine arts (BFA) degrees in studio art. Both studio degrees include exposure to ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
  • Bachelor of fine arts degree in pre-art conservation.
  • Bachelor of arts and master of arts (MA) degrees in art history (with an option of a museum studies concentration at the graduate level). 
  • There are two 4+1 options to allow motivated students to complete both an undergraduate and graduate degree in five years. In art history, a BA and MA in art history/museum studies is available. In studio studies, a BA or a BFA in studio art/MA in curriculum and instruction with certification to teach K–12 art is offered in partnership with the Morgridge College of Education.
