With New York City’s unrivaled cultural resources at your fingertips, the BA in Art History program at  Pace University offers a wealth of experiences.

Making maximum use of the city's resources, classes regularly visit museums and galleries where works of art are examined and experienced firsthand. You may combine your academic studies with practical experiences in the field through museum and art gallery internships, which may be completed for credit towards the major.

We believe that students learn best when developing thinking, questioning and creative fabrication skills simultaneously – integrating subject matter/media and expressive form. In art history courses, students are required to do research, study and analyze works of contemporary and historical art from around the globe, and to write research papers.


Every semester we offer Career Panels exposing students to opportunities in a myriad of art and design fields, including portfolio preparation, applying for graduate school, or installing an exhibition.
