The art history major at Moore combines outstanding opportunities to achieve an in-depth understanding of art history from the traditions of an art practice throughout history to the economics and politics of contemporary art, craft and design. The major covers a wide array of topics and media, critical approaches, and historical periods, and offers a flexible degree program for students who want to link extensive studies in art history with a significant and intensive studio practice. Working closely with a dedicated, professionally active faculty, students gain a working knowledge of visual cultures around the world. The program provides an excellent basis for graduate study in art history, in addition to preparation for careers in related fields such as museum studies, gallery work and publishing in the arts.
