The student who majors in Art History usually is very versatile due to the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. As a result, Art History can accommodate a wide variety of career interests, and nearly all of our Art History majors pursue second majors or minors.
The range of career goals is quite impressive, ranging from art theft investigator, art lawyer, gallery owner/manager, art appraiser, art therapist, art historian, art librarian, curator, art critic, etc.
Our program is unique because professors also are faculty within the History Department, and although students don't need to have a prior background in the creative arts, this program also has a close relationship with the Art Department.
If you'd like to check out the art history degree program for yourself, just let your Admissions counselor know that you'd like to sit in on an Art History class during a campus visit, and we'll take it from there.
And please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about studying Art History at St. Ambrose University.
