Welcome to the Art History Department!
Our department offers personalized attention in the context of a large, prestigious university. With our small class sizes and opportunities for close working relationships with faculty, the Art History major provides students with the critical thinking, reading, writing, and research skills that enable them to succeed in college and beyond. Our students go on to work in auction houses, museums, and commercial galleries; they get degrees in architectural design, historic preservation, and academic art history.
Art History at Rutgers is also a classic humanities major that prepares students for much broader careers in fields like education, non-profit work, journalism, law, and many others. Our major offers a chance to think critically about architecture and art-making across time and around the globe.
