Art History Major


Requirements for the Major


Art history majors will take two introductory art history courses, six additional art history courses, one studio art course, the senior seminar, and the senior thesis, for a total of 11 required courses.

Note:


Majors who intend to pursue graduate studies should study at least two foreign languages appropriate to their areas of interest. Students are strongly encouraged to apply for summer internships in museums, galleries, and conservation labs, and to study abroad during their junior year.

Honors Requirements


A student who wishes to graduate with honors in art history must achieve a minimum grade point average of 11.0 (A-) in the major and earn an A on the senior thesis. The honors student will defend the completed thesis before a committee that consists of at least three members (the two thesis readers and an additional faculty member to be selected by the student).
