The Department of Fine Arts offers a B.A. with a Major or Minor in Art History. The study of Art History is integral to the study of art and visual culture. With its increasingly interdisciplinary approach, Art History encompasses a broad range of visual, cultural and social studies. An art history background provides valuable insight into history, philosophy and the humanities in general. Course offerings range from an introduction to World Art to more focused examinations of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries, including Canadian Art, Contemporary Art, and Women in Art. Advanced seminars are also offered on subjects ranging from critical issues around Modernism and Postmodernism, Feminist and Gender Studies, Museum Studies, Art Criticism and Theory, and Photography and Film Studies. Students majoring in Art History are also encouraged to do a Special Topics paper on a specific area of interest. Courses are also offered for credit as Art History courses in Classics, Philosophy, English, History, and Modern Languages and Literatures. The Owens Art Gallery is an invaluable resource for the study of Art History and for the Fine Arts Department. Further resources include Fine Arts field trips and a Visiting Artists' Program.
