Department of Art and Art History

The Department of Art and Art History offers two majors, Art History and Studio Art, with the shared purpose of understanding the history, theory, and practice of the visual arts.  Courses reflect the diversity of the internationally recognized faculty's talents and expertise as active artists and scholars committed to offering a rigorous and meaningful learning experience.  The Department’s close relationship with the Cornell Museum enhances students’ direct contact with some of the very works they study and provides opportunities for research, internships, and exhibitions of work.
