Giving Opportunities

Like other traditional liberal arts programs, History of Art provides students with a broad education that develops their ability to think critically, conduct research, solve scholarly problems, and write fluently. But Art History at the University of Michigan also offers something quite unique. Through classroom experiences and field trips, students gain an in-depth understanding of cultural phenomena and come to appreciate how visual artifacts can be as meaningful and significant as texts. By cultivating the ability to interpret works of art, students engage in a wide ranging comparative study of various traditions and cultures, broadening horizons and gaining new insights into the nature of their own culture.
