In the Art History program offered by Messiah College, you’ll study all Western art as well as some non-Western art, and will prepare for a great career as an educator, museum curator, gallery operator or art appraiser. A high percentage of our students also are accepted into graduate programs for art history and museum studies.


Art History at Messiah College

The flexibility of the art history program offered by Messiah College allows you to take minors or double majors, such as history, studio art or marketing, which helps to further shape the major in your areas of interest.

You will have the opportunity to participate in either the departmental honors program or an independent study opportunity for in-depth research. In addition, each of our aspiring young art historians spends time studying abroad in locations such as Rome, London or Sydney.
