In addition to fulfilling core requirements for the B.A. in art history, students with a particular interest in the history of architecture may elect to complete a concentration in architecture. The concentration complements the broad coverage of the major requirements by providing interested students with in-depth exposure to architectural history and theory.

4. The Minor in Art History is designed for students who wish to explore art and architectural history as a complement to their major and as a way of expanding their intellectual horizons. The minor will especially appeal to students in anthropology, art, languages, and history, but is accessible to students with any major field who have an interest in art and architecture.
