As a humanistic discipline, the history of art closely relates the analysis of visual culture to other modes of intellectual inquiry; accordingly, Art History students and faculty frequently participate in interdisciplinary programs across the University.
The skill sets developed in art historical studies at Boston College, however, do not apply exclusively to the analysis of works of art.
The ability to evaluate material evidence, to study the cultural contexts in which it was discovered, to assess critically the various interpretations works of art have elicited, and to fashion clear and persuasive arguments in kind are valuable in any program of study or professional situation. In a world increasingly dominated by images, visual literacy is as indispensable to navigating one’s everyday environment as it is to analyzing products of high culture.
