Art History at Southwestern prepares you to delve deeply into other cultures, which are distant in time or space, and work inside them. Southwestern’s Art History program prepares students to work across cultural boundaries and unite visual and verbal thinking. The curriculum includes 50/50 Western/Non-Western studies.
Most art history majors study abroad or participate in internships in New York. Graduates succeed in careers in a variety of fields both inside and outside of the arts including medical, law, international business, diplomacy, and NGOs. Recent graduates have gone on to professions in university teaching and curatorial and museum management including art auction houses, local cultural museums, major art museums, cultural centers, and properties and gallery management.
