Art reveals insights into the culture of a nation or group, the attitudes of a time period, even the nature of a struggle or a conflict. Thus, as an art historian you ll concern yourself not just with art production and art objects, but also with cultural and aesthetic issues, which opens a wide variety of career opportunities.

You ll be ready upon graduation to continue your education in art history or related fields, or to enter into employment in museum, publication, or similar work. The increasingly digital nature of the modern world is opening many more national and international career options for Art History majors.
