University Majors

Sonoma State University
Art B.A. Concentration in Art History

Art history is an interdisciplinary program within the department, with a core of period and survey courses that provide an integrative investigation of art and culture using both traditional and new approaches and technologies. The curriculum provides a broad overview of traditional European contributions, an introduction to the arts outside the European tradition, familiarity with historical methodology and research, including online and electronic sources, and critical thinking. Our core is enhanced by periodic offerings of specialized upper-division classes that have included in-depth studies of artists, themes and post-modern theory, and of current issues, such as gender and multiculturalism. As a demonstration of mastery of skills and knowledge in the field, art history requires students to write a senior thesis, which indicates original research or interpretation. Students should also pursue language studies that will enable them to carry our primary reserarch.
