Degree programs in art history are offered through the Meadows School of the Arts. Degrees offered in art history include the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.), and the Master of Arts (M.A.). The Bachelor of Arts degree in art history places the history of art within the wider context of such humanistic disciplines as history, religion, aesthetics, politics, language, and civilization generally. The Bachelor of Fine Arts provides a course of study that incorporates both art history and studio art. The Master of Arts degree in art history is designed to provide a broad but rigorous background in the history of art. A minor in art history enables all students to extend their study into the realm of the visual arts and architecture and so to broaden their appreciation of the cultural content of artistic form.
