Art and Music History Program

The Art and Music program offers two minors: Art History and Music History. Foundation courses in studio art are also offered (e.g., drawing, design and painting). Each discipline aims to develop a student’s creative expression, to prompt aesthetic appreciation and judgment, to develop critical thinking, and to deepen understanding of the impulse to create with sound and image. Designated courses in Art History and Music History satisfy General Education requirements in the following areas: Humanities, Cultural Diversity, and Writing-Intensive.

A minor in Art History requires 18 credits, including ARTH 111 and 112. Four additional courses in Art History are required. Internships at the Everhart Museum are available to Art History minors upon completing 12 credits in Art History.

Students with minors in Art History have recently enrolled in graduate degree programs in art history, decorative arts, library science and museum education. Others have accepted employment with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Sotheby’s New York and Franklin Institute.
