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 the study of the visual 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 perceptions about works 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.
