Our Art History B.A. equips students with translatable skills needed for a variety of career paths. We also offer an undergraduate minor that pairs well with many degrees, including those in professional schools. Graduate students can pursue an Art History M.A., the combined M.A./M.L.S. degree, or our Ph.D. program.
Courses for curious minds
We offer courses on a range of visual traditions—from ancient to contemporary—in Africa, the Americas, East Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The diverse course topics offered in Art History appeal to students in a wide variety of disciplines.
Dedicated teachers, exceptional scholars
Our department is an exciting place where you have the opportunity to learn from faculty members who have exceptional knowledge about their fields of study. We are invested in the intellectual development of our students and encourage discovery as you make use of the many visual studies resources on the IU campus.
Collections + connections across campus
Our faculty and students work directly with the collections of the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art, the Kinsey Institute, Lilly Library, IU Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, and the Monroe County Historical Society. We also frequently collaborate with the School of Art, Architecture + Design and many other humanities departments and programs in the College of Arts and Sciences.
