The core of art history courses focuses on Western Art from antiquity to the present. Art is studied within its continually changing social, religious, political, and intellectual contexts, with an emphasis on scholarly inquiry. Period courses are combined with courses focusing on the theoretical background of and issues in the discipline. The courses are designed to develop the student’s analytical and critical thinking through exposure to and practice of theoretical and methodological issues within the history of art.

Career prospects include teaching (at all levels), museum or gallery work, archaeology, work in auction houses, journalism, advertising, publishing and editing, and in related fields (following specialized training programs) such as conservation, archival studies, library sciences with a specialty in art history or archaeology, arts administration, art law, art advising, art appraisal, arts management, art investment, antiquarian book trade and heritage management. In addition, the critical, analytical, research and presentation skills that Art History students acquire as part of their education are transferable and sought after in other fields as well.
