Art Major

B.A. Degree

Students desiring a concentration in art history and museum studies have the option of getting a B.A. degree in art with the art history concentration. This program is especially ideal for students who are interested in art, art history, and other disciplines such as history, anthropology, and literature. The concentration will prepare such students for graduate work in art history and/or museum studies and it also provides a relevant base for students who are interested in pursuing a master’s degree in art therapy. In general, the concentration combines a strong emphasis on art history with the opportunity to take electives and in some cases, pursue a minor, in fields such as business, health sciences, and the various humanities.
