Art B.A. Concentration in Art History
The School of Art is committed to offering a fine arts curriculum in a liberal arts context with diverse and vital programs for the study of the visual arts in Northern California. Its programs foster development of specialized skills, encourage personal creative direction, and promote understanding of the history and cultural traditions that shape artistic expression. The School of Art faculty are dedicated to bridging the practice, theory and history of art, and to combining traditional and new technologies in a manner that reflects and affects contemporary culture.
The Bachelor of Arts in Art program consists of a common core and the choice of a concentration in Art Education, Art History, Studio Art or Art History and Studio Art. The core provides introductory experiences in art history and studio courses that are integral to each concentration. The area of concentration allows for more focused study in one specialty, but with a degree of breadth sufficient for understanding and awareness in other areas. Advanced courses in the concentrations focus on perceptual skills, modes of consciousness, creative expression, and critical thinking. Attention is given to traditions and heritage of the discipline, contemporary issues and forms, imaginative problem solving, and written English proficiency within the discipline. All courses are designed to provide a broad experiential and conceptual orientation to the visual arts and art history.
