History of Art & Architecture

The visual arts constitute a compelling vehicle for a liberal arts education in a global context. Our department offers emphases in art history, museum studies, architectural history, architectural studies, and architecture and the environment.

In art history we study works of art and architecture as bearers of meaning and as manifestations of culture, often considered in a historical context. In architectural studies we scrutinize the built environment in relationship to its natural and cultural contexts, firmly grounded in both theory and praxis.
