Our increasingly image-rich culture makes the study and thoughtful interpretation of the visual arts central to a liberal arts education today. Art History & Archaeology courses address global histories of arts and visual culture from antiquity to the present. Students engage in the research, analysis, and critical interpretation of art as they question the roles of creativity and imagination across cultures. In doing so they prepare for a broad range of careers, ranging from positions in higher education, museums, and arts administration to business, social work and law.
