Studying art history fosters critical thinking skills and a sense of cultural literacy that are beneficial whether or not your future pursuits include art.

The Chandler Senior Experience in art history propels students toward a focused area of interest that often informs their steps beyond Lawrence. Many Lawrentians put their art history studies to work in museum and conservation work, as well as art therapy and education.

Lawrentians can go on to enjoy careers in art therapy, museum curation, conservation, museum education, elementary/secondary art education, graphic design, interior design, higher education, archivists, entrepreneurs, and law.

They can also earn advanced degrees in art history, business administration and management, law, medicine, Medieval and Renaissance studies, and museum studies.
