The Art - Art History at Transylvania University is also interdisciplinary—in addition to art history courses that cover areas such as ancient, gothic, Renaissance, modern and Asian art, the major may encompass courses from anthropology, history or philosophy. This approach to the study of art history looks at how artists are shaped by historical, political, social and intellectual conditions. The artist is seen as a part of this whole, rather than separate from it.

Transylvania students learn in a global classroom. Study abroad offers travel opportunities for an academic year, a term, a summer or May term. Trips to such cities as Paris, Florence, Rome and London give students access to the art and architecture they study, as well as first-hand experiences they can bring back to campus for further examination. Kenan Grants have funded student research and creative work all over the world, including England, France and Germany.
