Art History and Theory (Hons) students at Bishop’s University have gone on to graduate programs in art history, museum studies, architecture, art conservation and restoration, and arts administration. Some now work in art galleries and auction houses, others as art appraisers, freelance art critics/writers, independent curators, and university teachers.
Through the methods and concepts of art history, students learn the ‘visual’ language of images as they acquire knowledge and understanding of all forms of visual arts ranging from earliest cave paintings to latest new media installations, from monumental to miniature.
Using diverse approaches and theories, art is critically analysed in the larger social, cultural, economic, institutional, and ideological context of its production, display, and reception. As students engage with works of art and key texts in art history, theory, criticism, they develop visual as well as verbal and written literacy. Art History fosters creative and critical thinking, inquiry, analysis, and effective communication skills.
In its cross-disciplinary reach, Art History is a unique and wide-ranging discipline that encompasses aspects of history, philosophy, religion, psychology, sociology, gender studies, and cultural studies. Cross-listed courses with the departments of Classical Studies, Sociology, and History are offered to broaden the students’ conceptual horizons.
