Majors begin by taking two survey courses (AHI 101 and AHI 102) that introduce the issues and major monuments of art history. Building on this foundation, students complete six upper-level courses. These advanced courses provide more focused examinations of the history and concerns of specific societies. Majors are additionally required to take a pro-seminar, which provides a basic introduction to the debates and methods of the field; a methods course; and three sequential semesters of language study, or the equivalent. While a senior honors thesis is not required, majors are encouraged to consider undertaking such a project during their final year.
