Limitless imagination from historied art inspiration
Studying art history provokes a deep understanding of our collective consciousness and world influences.
From the ancient cave drawings at Altamira to Banksy’s street art, humans rely on art to communicate their vision of themselves and their world. Take this journey with Susquehanna faculty, who will share their scholarly expertise in visual analysis, critical thinking and research to enrichen your analytical skills and help you interconnect the world of art.
You will gain new perspectives from art history classes that address contemporary issues such as economics, politics, diversity, gender studies and social justice. You can double major or add a minor in studio art, museum studies, anthropology, foreign languages or environmental studies. In addition to having access to nearby major art cities such as New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Susquehanna makes study abroad easy and affordable, where you can explore art in historied world settings.
Imagine presenting a paper at a conference. Or manage an exhibition as you run the Lore Degenstein Gallery on campus as a paid employee or intern. You will be ready to step right into a professional career in and outside of the arts, working in museums, galleries or educational and cultural institutions, or pursue graduate studies.
