  • Objectives
    Art history is the study of art created in the past by individuals
    from various cultures and parts of the world. It is the study
    of the historical development of art as social and intellectual
    phenomenon, the analysis of works of art and art conservation.
    Students study specific periods, cultures, styles and themes. The
    art historian seeks to interpret and understand works of art of
    many types, ranging from the monumental to small scale, by
    learning about artists’ lives and their societies. Students are prepared
    for a wide range of professional careers – in museums,
    galleries, auction houses or publishing including antique dealer,
    art appraiser, art dealer, art restorer and museum curator.
    This major may also lead to many other careers. For additional
    possibilities, visit the Career Services Center on campus
    to utilize computerized career information systems and other
    valuable career resources.
    Students planning to transfer to a four-year college should

    education pattern for the appropriate transfer institution.
