¿Qué aprenderé?


The study of Art History examines specific works of art and architecture both as expressions of human creativity and as uniquely informative historical documents. Through such investigations students gain a greater aesthetic appreciation of art and a deeper understanding of its purposes in different times and places. Understanding the historical development of art also contributes significantly to a student's comprehension of the overall development of human culture through the ages.

Art History is an essential part of the curriculum of all art programs at SIUE, including art studio and art education. The Department of Art and Design also offers a B.A. in art history. There are four full-time art history professors in the department, covering all historical periods from prehistory to contemporary art.

The art history curriculum at SIUE is designed such that students gain an understanding of broad historical traditions in the visual arts as well as specialized knowledge in one or more specific areas in the field of art history. Our students are also challenged to think critically and reason logically in written and verbal analysis of the visual arts. Three of our faculty members are art historians who offer courses on a broad range of topics from prehistoric to contemporary art, at both the introductory and advanced levels. Art history courses are taught in two smart classrooms, housed in the newly built Art and Design West building. Students also have access to the Art History Resource Room, which provides a variety of supporting research materials, including videos, books, magazines and a digitized image database.

Career Opportunities

An art history degree from SIUE prepares students for a wide variety of careers, including work in museums, art galleries, cultural institutions, and academia, as well as graduate school. Recent graduates have pursued advanced degrees at Washington University in St. Louis; University of Illinois, Springfield; and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Our students have gained employment at area institutions such as the Pulitzer, the St. Louis Art Museum, and Leslie Hind man Auctioneers. Many of our graduates also pursue the certificate in museum studies at SIUE, which is an interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate degree that offers those students with an interest in exploring a museum career an opportunity to gain expertise that will aid in their career advancement.
