Art History Minor


The minor in Art History allows students to expand their knowledge of the history and context of the visual arts while majoring in another area. Students take 18 credit hours of art history, including the core art history surveys and courses on modern and contemporary art, non-western art, and art theory and criticism. A knowledge of art history combined with other fields should provide students with excellent preparation for graduate studies or for rewarding careers in museums, galleries, art criticism, and cultural agencies. The Art History minor allows many possibilities for interdisciplinary collaboration at Columbia College Chicago, in particular with concentrations in Fine Arts; Cultural Studies; Journalism; and Business and Entrepreneurship.
