BA in Art History
Bachelor of Arts in Art History Requirements
In addition to the University General Education requirements, Art History majors are required to complete courses listed below. Courses used to fulfill University General Education requirements, if they are applicable, may be used to satisfy Department specific requirements.
All art history students fulfill core requirements by beginning with two introductory courses that survey art from the prehistoric period to the present. Studio courses, including Foundation Drawing/Design I: 2D and Foundation Drawing/Design II: 3D, enrich students’ understanding of the creative process, while Art History Seminar and Intro to Methodology in Art History provide them with research skills and approaches. The program is capped by either a senior thesis or an intensive art internship.
Students majoring in art history at UNO can select from different tracks. For those interested in a career in a gallery or museum additional courses in public administration, non-profit institutions, and management are part of the Museum Studies/Art Administration path. Students wishing to pursue graduate school enroll in 9 additional hours of art history courses beyond the 18 upper-level hours required by all art history majors. UNO faculty members offer a diverse range of upper-level courses (period and special topics) that employ contemporary methods and perspectives.
