Our history of art program features a rich and rigorous array of courses. You'll study everything from frescos to friezes, tapestries to tiles, prints to paintings, armor to architecture, and more. BW's core curriculum—rooted in the liberal arts tradition—offers you an ideal context for comprehending and critiquing works of art.
More than dates and data, art history is an immersion in critical, analytical and integrative thinking. You'll study the masters whose art works have impacted our lives, as well as learn how their creations were self defining, self revealing and sometimes self sacrificing.
