Art History from Oglethorpe University takes you from hand prints painted in caves to the cutting edge of contemporary art.


Art History from Oglethorpe University is based on the belief that with the earliest examples of human artwork now dating back as far as 40,000 years ago, the visual arts are one of the very oldest means of human expression. Their history is intrinsically bound up with the story of civilization, and even what it means to be human—an incredible subject to explore in the intellectually stimulating environment at Oglethorpe, grounded by the broader context of the liberal arts.

As an Art History student, you’ll discover the history and context of visual media such as architecture, drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture, along with evolving contemporary and digital forms. The course election is extensive, ranging from Ancient to Modern, in wide-ranging topics like Symbology; Archaeology; Far Eastern Art; Italian Renaissance; Modern Art; 18th and 19th Century European Art; Art of the Pre-Columbian Americas, Africa, and Oceania; and Modern Architecture.

Life After Oglethorpe

  • As an Art History graduate, you’ll be well-prepared for rewarding work in a museum, as a curator, in the preservation field working with cherished art and antiques, as an administrator in a not-for-profit organization, or as an educator.
