The major in Art History of Providence College is designed for undergraduates interested in a humanistic education, as well as for those who may pursue careers in college-level teaching, research, museums and galleries, historic preservation, and related careers.


The major in Art History of Providence College emphasizes the historical, cultural, and formal contexts of art. Art history majors begin study in introductory surveys of major artistic achievements from antiquity to the 21st century, and then deepen their knowledge in courses covering individual aspects and periods.

Key facts:

Students are required to take at least one course in each of the following core areas: ancient, medieval, Renaissance, modern, and non-Western; one 400-level seminar; ARH 380 Interpretive Methods; and ARH 498, consisting of the preparation of the thesis in the senior year, which is the culmination of the art history program where students write an original research project that is potentially published in the PC Art Journal. In addition, students are encouraged to take a wide variety of art history electives and to develop programs related to individual interests and backgrounds.

Art history majors are required to take two courses in studio art, so that they will expe­rience and appreciate the methodology of the creative artist. Additionally, reading knowl­edge of French or German is required, which is demonstrated by taking two college-level semesters of either language.
