Bachelor of Arts


About the BA

The BA (Bachelor of Arts) in Art History prepares the student for a variety of post-graduate experiences. These range from continued study in the discipline in graduate school, leading to careers in college and university teaching and research as well as curatorial work in museums, to entry-level positions in museums and galleries. As a well-rounded program of study, the major can also lead to the pursuit of corollary disciplines, such as archaeology, restoration and conservation, anthropology, religious studies, art education and criticism. Moreover, this is a program of study with an emphasis on detailed visual analysis, writing and oral work, skills that can also lead readily to studies in law and business.
