Art History Capstone at CFAM

Art History majors undertake a senior capstone experience in which students collaborate with the Cornell Fine Arts Museum (CFAM) on the realization of an exhibition. Through this practicum seminar class, students undertake original research, write educational material for the public, and give docent tours. This course provides students with practical experience applying their art history skills to gain professional experience in an exclusive, competitive field.​

Research and Professional Development

Art History and Studio Art majors can choose from many exciting co-curricular opportunities such as internships, collaborative student-faculty research, scholarship support for independent research, travel, study abroad, field studies and professional workshops. We recommend that students meet with a faculty member early in the academic planning process to discuss which opportunities will work best for them. Check out this blog to see what our students have been doing with their travel and research opportunities!
