About

The Art History Program at University of San Diego examines the historical and theoretical frames that have shaped the definition of "art history" over time.

Overview

Art History, as Donald Preziosi has written, makes "the visible legible." Over the course of their college careers at University of San Diego, students of art history are equipped to think and write with precision about art, architecture and visual culture. 

Attuned to perceptual process and alert to the power of images and objects, students reason with the evidence and investigate theoretical lenses, imagining and analyzing the intertwining of form, context and content.

Global History of Modern and Contemporary Art and Architecture

This path focuses on the unfolding of modern and contemporary art and architecture across a broad geographical reach. Students develop depth and breadth of knowledge as they probe the ways that art and architecture at once reflect and shape the societies in which they are produced. This concentration draws on the strength of our faculty in the history and theory of modern and contemporary art and architecture in the United States, Latin America, Eastern and Western Europe and Asia.
