The Certificate in Art History is intended for students in all disciplines who are interested in developing visual literacy, an indispensable skill that will allow them to recognize, interpret, and appreciate meaning in our image-saturated world.

Studying the material and visual world and its production will allow students to better appreciate the connection between the past and the contemporary present, while also cultivating social awareness in relation to the politics of representation and display. While gaining expertise in visual analysis, research, impacts of various historical contexts, and art historical methodologies, students will also gain invaluable skills highly valued by today’s employers. These include critical awareness, problem solving skills, attention to detail, effective communication (verbal and written), the ability to work independently under time constraints, and the skill to critically analyze and interpret information from a wide range of sources.
