Recommendations

Art history majors are urged to coordinate with their studies participation in one of Lawrence’s international off-campus programs or the program at the Newberry Library in Chicago.

Art history majors, particularly those considering graduate studies, are strongly encouraged to begin the study of German and/or French in the freshman or sophomore year.

Senior Experience in Art History

The art history Senior Experience consists of two 600-level courses: ARHI 660: The Methods of Art History and ARHI 680: Senior Seminar. ARHI 660 may be taken during the junior or senior year and serves as the prerequisite for ARHI 680, taken during the senior year. Students pursuing double majors and double degrees are encouraged to consult in advance with the art history faculty if they are interested in pursuing a research topic in ARHI 680 that integrates their interests in both majors.
