Department of Art History

The Art History Department at St. Thomas seeks to explore the many dimensions of art in a broad range of periods and worldwide cultures. The courses and faculty of the department prompt students to become investigators, learning to ask and answer questions about art, from pottery to painting, from bronzes to buildings. Students are encouraged to conduct independent research and to present their findings to a broader audience, and to make art accessible inside and outside of the classroom.

Art history embodies the study of the liberal arts by considering the work of art and architecture within its broader cultural context, including religion, economic production, politics, gender and social identification.
