Undergraduate Programs

A range of course offerings, including lower-division lecture courses (8 units) and upper-division seminars (12 units), bring the history of the visual arts across the ages to life in a truly global context. Art history minors learn important visual literacy, critical thinking, and communication skills, gain valuable cultural knowledge, and grapple with the rich and nuanced histories of art in a global, social context.

All courses include field trips to art museums and galleries in the Bay Area or to cultural resources on campus. Optional, art-related internships and related study abroad opportunities are also possible for minors who wish to extend their studies.
