Overview

During the Art - Art History program of Berea College students learn how to treat non-verbal objects as evidence, how to use scholarly publications, and how to explain their insights and findings in written and oral formats. Students learn to weigh and interpret the narratives present in the visual medium through close object-based study to reveal information regarding the artist, their cultures of origin, and consider the works’ meanings within the contemporary world. The department’s emphasis upon critical thinking and its strong commitment to interdisciplinary inquiry prepares students for a variety of specialized professions, including architecture, museum and gallery work, conservation or preservation, graduate work in art and architectural history, teaching, law, medicine, and business.
