A main goal of the Department of Art and Art History is to help students acquire visual intelligence, i.e., the ability to understand and respond critically to our world’s art and visual culture and how it has been shaped by the visual traditions of other times and places. Students in our department develop sophisticated written, technical, and visual abilities that allow them to convey their ideas, their understanding, and their appreciation of art.
