An ideal complement to many majors, the Art History minor builds the techniques of visual intelligence necessary to successfully navigate an increasingly image-driven world. Students learn to interpret visual evidence as well as written documents to understand and interrogate how evolving ideas about quality and judgement have shaped the institutions of art, including the growing art market. A diverse and strong faculty brings its own research into the classroom, allowing students to gain international exposure and real world experience with world-class museums and cultural centers in Boston, Cambridge, and the greater metropolitan area. Art History minors often have opportunities to conduct independent research, develop publishable texts and gain exposure to the dynamic fields of visual art and curatorial practice.
