A critical approach to art in its social, historical, and cultural context complements students’ own creative work and process. 

Students of Art History and Studio Art at McDaniel College Budapest learn to describe, analyze, and interpret the form and content of works of art, while examining the significant movements of Western art as well as the secular and sacred art of Asia, Africa, and the Americas. 

At the same time, students acquire an array of techniques for their own artistic self-expression, ranging from two and three-dimensional design, to computer graphics and web design, photography, painting, and sculpture. 

Classes are small and involve close work with our professors, and students benefit from a wealth of opportunities to view historic and contemporary art in a Budapest, a major European art center.

Students completing the Studio Art and Art History major are equipped to continue their studies in well-known Masters of Fine Arts Programs, as well as Ph.D. programs in art history. 

They have entered the workplace as graphic and web designers, photographers and event organizers, able to bridge different visual cultures in the service of businesses, museums, schools, and marketing firms.
