BA Honours History of Art and Visual Culture (HAVC)

History of Art and Visual Culture courses examine the development of artistic styles as well as the critical and aesthetic issues that these styles bring into play. Major artists and movements are related to their cultural contexts and artistic traditions with the goal of developing critical as well as aesthetic acumen. With the choice of a Major or Minor in the History of Art and Visual Culture as well as a Concentration in Curatorial Studies, students can explore the cultural, theoretical or practical methods involving the interpretation or exhibition of works of art.
