Art History

Case Western Reserve University provides students with the unique opportunity of taking courses in one of America’s major art museums. Its outstanding collections enable students to study at first-hand important examples of art from various world cultures. The curriculum is designed to give students a broad grounding in painting, sculpture, architecture and the decorative arts, with a strong emphasis on understanding the cultural context in which they were produced. Students also develop a technical and critical vocabulary as well as sound writing skills to express ideas and feelings about a work of art.  Internships (both credit and non-credit) at local museums and other arts institutions provide experiential learning opportunities for those interested in careers for art history majors and minors.
