University Majors


University of California, Santa Cruz
History of Art and Visual Culture B.A (Religion and Visual Culture Concentration

The History of Art and Visual Culture department at UC Santa Cruz investigates a wide variety of representations in the cultures of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific Islands, including areas as diverse as ritual, performance, architecture, photography, bodily adornment, landscape painting, installation art, and video games. The curriculum guides students in critical thinking and investigation of complex questions concerning the social, political, economic, religious, and psychological impact of images from the perspective of their producers, users, and viewers. Images play a central role in the formation of values and beliefs, including our perception of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, and class. Through attentive historical study and close analysis, students are taught to recognize and assess these systems of value, and are introduced to theoretical and methodological frameworks for future research.
