    Learn the Meaning Behind the Art

    The art history minor provides students with the necessary skills to critically assess the origins and changing dynamics of the visual arts.

    By minoring in art history, art students can add the necessary credits to apply to graduate school in this field.

    By its very nature, art history is multidisciplinary and not only develops visual literacy and tools for critical thinking but also introduces students to the sociocultural contexts in which artworks are produced, providing students with the opportunities for understanding cultural diversity and lifelong learning.
