Online Major/Minor

The Department of Art History has developed both an online art history major and minor for its undergraduate students. The online minor in art history came to fruition during Spring 2010 with the development of both ARTHIST 101 and 102. Tenured/tenure-track and qualified adjunct faculty have created approximately 15 different courses online. The department's online offerings represent a wide-range of levels from broad surveys at the 100/200-level (which do not require pre-requisites) to upper-division courses at the 300-400-level. Likewise, the variety of courses provides the necessary range of distribution (both in terms of chronology and geography) required by the department's standard major (Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance/Baroque, Modern-Contemporary, and non-Western).
