B.A. in Art History

The Art History major introduces you to art from around the world and across different time periods.  Your studies focus on close analysis of art objects, monuments, historic structures, and other aspects of visual culture from the ancient world to the contemporary, preparing you for careers in museums, galleries, arts administration, and other areas of cultural heritage management.

You’ll have the opportunity to study works in person at the on-campus Frank Museum of Art, as well as off campus at the many museums and collections in central Ohio and beyond.  The art history program also includes international travel courses to important art centers around the world.  You’ll gain real-world experience completing internships at the Frank Museum, as well as area museums such as the Columbus Museum of Art, the Columbus Cultural Arts Center, and more.
