You will learn...

The Art History major offered by Yeshiva University gives students a strong foundation in the field—Western and non-Western, from ancient to modern. Students acquire an intensive knowledge of the key developments in each era, as well as familiarity with the conceptual framework of the discipline.

The program places a strong emphasis on firsthand exposure to and study of art, taking advantage of Stern Colleges prime Manhattan location. We integrate museum and site visits into all classes and design upper-level lectures and seminars around key local exhibitions and collections.

In addition, the program reflects Yeshiva University's unique character by offering classes that focus on significant Jewish themes and movements.
