• Art History at Hamline University

    The study of art history involves the analysis of art and architecture within a cultural framework and is thus highly interdisciplinary in approach.  The goals of the department are to enhance students' perceptual and analytical abilities and improve research and writing skills. Through foundation courses, specialized electives, and advanced seminars art history students gain the ability to work independently on a senior research project that is the culmination of undergraduate art history studies.
