The B.A. program in Art History at the University of Texas at Arlington emphasizes historical research, preparing students for graduate work in art history or museum studies.


The mission of the Art History program at The University of Texas at Arlington is to provide and encourage an understanding and expansion of knowledge in visual arts, art history, and art education. 

The curriculum provides students with varied opportunities to study and interrogate the fundamental nature of the visual arts, its methods, technologies, and boundaries. 

The department encourages the use of wide-ranging media and methodologies, which enables our students not only to create unique and exciting work, but also to locate their work in the meaningful broader context of the history of art and society.  

The intellectual community is purposefully inclusive, enriched and enhanced by its diversity of race and ethnicity, gender identity, and religious tolerance.
