History of Art SGA


The History of Art Department's provides a course load integral to a well-rounded art education. We provide courses of academic rigor which help to establish the historical context to better inform student's studio practice.

An understanding of the history of art is interregnal to a student's ability to contextualize and seek inspiration for their own work. We educate students to critically examine the form and content of art, both their own and others', to understand it in historical, social, and global contexts. This challenges students to question the traditional boundaries of their discipline, but also to question the perspective with which they evaluate work.
