What is Art History at WVU like?
The BA in Art History provides a foundation in the history of art and architecture in its cultural and theoretical context. Courses in Art History introduce tools for the making and analysis of art.
The Art Museum of WVU, the Mesaros Galleries in the Creative Arts Center and the Visiting Artist Lecture Series offer unique opportunities in your course of study and allow for curatorial exploration. Internships with regional museums and galleries are possible.
Each semester, Art History field trips travel to study works in regional museums. Majors are encouraged to study abroad through several field study and study abroad programs available. Art History courses are offered abroad through our special Global Positioning Studies program that includes the Disegno Italia program, 18th Century Painting and Photography in France and Medieval Stained Glass in France.
