Bachelor of Arts, History of Art

For the Bachelor of Arts with a major in the history of art, in addition to fulfilling all the general requirements for graduation within the liberal arts curriculum, students take a minimum of 33 credits in the history of art, including a two-semester survey (1010 and 1020) and three 6000-level seminars. Students graduating in 2016 are exempt from this and are required to take only two 6000-level seminars. Five courses should come from the following fields (two each from two fields and one from the third field):

    1. Ancient, Medieval and Pre-Columbian art

    2. Colonial Latin American, Renaissance and Baroque art

    3. American art; and the Modern art of Europe, the Americas, and the African Diaspora

A one-credit writing practicum is available with art history courses at the 6000 level and above that satisfy the college writing requirement.  Please note this excludes all School of Continuing Studies courses, unless cross-listed with LAS Art History courses.
