California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Art History B.A.
The Art Department offers two majors, (1) Art, leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and (2) Graphic Design, leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The B.A. program includes two options, one in Fine Arts and one in Art History. A minor in Art History is also offered through the B. A. program.
Art history is an academic discipline concerned with the production, consumption, and experience of art, architecture, design, mass media, and other artifacts that manifest themselves visually or tangibly. Art historians may study any period, region, or cultural tradition. To analyze the so-called `visual culture` of every period and place, and to understand its relationship to cultural contexts and social functions, art historians may employ diverse methodologies. Students pursuing the B.A in Art History must practice verbal and written communication as well as skills of interpretation, critical-thinking, and research. Common career paths for students with the B.A. Art History include teaching at all levels, art-museum curating, art auctioneering, art-collection consulting, art-related editing and publishing, art conservation, and careers in art law. Most professions require graduate degrees or additional coursework in related areas. At Cal Poly Pomona, there are many opportunities for students to minor in an additional area of their choice.
