Overview

Honours Bachelor of Arts in Art History

Immerse yourself in historical perspectives of the visual arts. Engage with the methodologies of art history and consider modern issues of artistic practice and display in one of Canada’s premier Art History programs. Learn from the Bachinski/Chu Print Study Collection with over 1,600 works of art including Rembrandt, Goya, and Picasso. 

Art history is the study of art and architecture as manifestations of human creativity and as valuable forms of historical documentation. Art history students learn to appreciate the fundamental and varied roles the visual arts play in the lives of human beings, as they become familiar with major works in the Western and non-Western traditions. Toward this end, students learn how works of art embody, but also condition and control cultural, economic, social, religious, political, racial, and gender dynamics. The Art History program covers historical perspectives on the visual arts, study of the methodologies of art history and critical theory, and consideration of contemporary issues in the practice and display of art. In this regard It encourages broad, interdisciplinary exploration of artistic, aesthetic, and visual traditions in their social, historical, and cross-cultural contexts. It responds to the vision of a learner-centered university by engaging in innovative teaching, and providing students with opportunities to travel to museums, galleries, and sites and to discuss their work in a supportive and challenging environment.

Students will take courses dealing with a variety of art-related topics from a range of historical eras, including the Medieval, Early Modern, Modern, and Contemporary periods. There are also opportunities for students to pursue Individual and Experiential Learning components and participate in annual symposium and publication  ARTHAttack!

Unique features of the programs: Paid research Assistantships are available so that graduates can demonstrate professional experience in primary and secondary research and knowledge creation and dissemination.
