About

The Art - Art History curriculum at Furman University is designed to provide students with a broad overview of art history and with a deeper understanding of particular areas and periods within it. 

Overview

Art - Art History students at Furman University learn how to read images, place them in their historical context, and analyze how meaning is made through visual texts. We foster the study of art chronologically, globally, and thematically—promoting flexibility in approach and method.

We emphasize experiential opportunities for Art History students, facilitating independent learning and internships with regional and national collections. With local partners, many courses include curatorial and museum-studies components, offering an insight into potential career trajectories. Many courses are open to students with few pre-requisites, allowing students to complement their major coursework with training in the interpretation of art, architecture, and visual culture. Indeed, the skills of observation, analysis, and communication that form the basis of every Art History class are relevant well beyond the study of art.

Students are also encouraged to spend a semester abroad in order to immerse themselves in the art and architecture of another culture. Furman’s study away programs are located throughout Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia.
