Requirements for Art History - A total of 39 semester hours is required for a major in art history. The degree program in art history provides an overview of the history of art together with minimum competency in a foreign language pertinent to the discipline, as well as direct experience of the art-making process through studio courses. Art history majors are expected to work closely with their adviser to identify courses that are most relevant to their interests and postgraduate goals.
Choose eight courses from the following:
Language: Six semester hours in a foreign language. Art history majors intending to continue studies at the graduate level should take two levels of the same language to acquire greater proficiency.
Art Studio: Six semester hours in art studio courses in areas such as drawing, painting, sculpture, 2D or 3D design, ceramics, fabric design, graphics, photography, weaving and computer graphics.
Art electives: Three semester hours in an art elective class (art history or art studio)
