|Field of Study:||Art History, Criticism and Conservation
|Description:||The department of art studies the history of art and architecture related to Europe, North America, and South and East Asia, and surveys all periods from the Bronze Age to the present. The program examines the transmission of ideas by means of visual images and architectural forms, conceived and expressed by individuals or by whole societies and civilizations. Some courses range widely, both geographically and temporally, while others focus on special artistic forms, traditions, or an individual artist. Students throughout the humanities (history, philosophy, literature, languages, etc.) will find materials that parallel their major interests.
