Art History

Minor

The art history minor is intended for students who wish to complement their major with a significant amount of study of art in its cultural contexts. Through the study of art history, students develop skills in key areas: visual analysis, critical thinking, research, and writing. They also learn to see history through the lens of art, and art from a range of historical, contextual, and theoretical perspectives.

For Visual Art and Design students who intend to pursue the study of art history at a graduate level: the study of at least 12 credit hours of a foreign language is highly recommended. Many graduate programs in art history include a foreign language proficiency requirement. BVU’s Spanish curriculum would fulfill this requirement.
