Undergraduate Concentration in Art History

NEW Fall semester 2015!

The Department of Art offers undergraduate majors in Art History new concentration in Egyptian art and archaeology.


The study of Ancient Egyptian art is by its very nature interdisciplinary, combining elements of visual analysis and art historical methods with textual evidence and archaeological and epigraphic fieldwork. This concentration will introduce students, at the undergraduate level, to various aspects of ancient Egyptian culture, focusing primarily on its art, language and literature. The ancient Egyptian objects in the collection of the Institute of Egyptian Art & Archaeology, both on display and in storage, provide an invaluable asset to this program and will greatly enhance the students' learning experience.

Within the requirements for the major in Art History, students in this concentration need to complete: ARTH 2010, 2030, 4112, 4113; two courses of ARTH 4197* (two semesters of hieroglyphs); and two courses selected from ARTH 4119, 4121, 4123, 4124, 4125, or 4183. In addition to 9 hours ARTH 4000-level series, students need to take two courses outside of the Department of Art, including HIST 4323 plus one of the following: ANTH 3300; ANTH 4352 (ESCI 4352); HIST 3320, 4068, 4320, 4321,4322; JDST 4841 (ANTH 4841/ESCI 4841).

For additional information on requirements for the undergraduate degree in Art History, carefully review the appropriate page in the Undergraduate Bulletin.


*Note: Two semesters of hieroglyphs (arranged as ARTH 4197) must be taken during the student's final year of study and do not meet the Foreign Language requirement for the B.A. Students in this concentration are encouraged to take either French or German to meet their Foreign Language requirement.
