All Art History Majors must take the department's one-term CAPSTONE SEMINAR IN ART HISTORY (082:491, 082:492), offered by the Department. The seminar should be completed during the junior year. If exceptional circumstances, such as participation in a Junior Year Abroad program, make this impossible, students may seek special permission from the Undergraduate Advisor to enroll as seniors. The course content depends upon the individual instructor, but all students present an oral report and write a research paper. Art History Majors may also choose and are strongly encouraged to take a second one-term seminar in Art History. This second seminar can be used to fulfill an area requirement related to the topic of the seminar. To enroll in the seminars, majors must obtain a special permission number. The seminars are not open to sophomores.
