In the Visual Studies and Art History program from Manhattanville College you’ll study art and architecture in their historical contexts - not only as aesthetic statements, but also as documents of culture.


Art history is an interdisciplinary field that examines the cultural, religious, political, literary, technological, and economic circumstances within which works of art are produced. With New York City just a half-hour away, you’ll have the opportunity to see many of the works you study in person – and get the chance to conduct research and hold internships at world-class museums, historical societies, galleries, libraries, and auction houses in New York City, Westchester County, and Connecticut.

In addition to learning about artistic expression and production in a variety of time periods and genres, our Visual Studies and Art History program from Manhattanville College offers both majors and minors the opportunity to broaden horizons through in-depth study of world cultures, develop sophisticated writing and research skills through writing-intensive seminars, become confident and articulate public speakers, and work closely with experts in their respective fields.
