Art History & Visual Studies
AHVS gives you the powerful tools to understand the world of art as well as the images you encounter every day. Our programs will help you navigate our increasingly visual world through the study of world art, film, design, and theories of vision. Across time and around the world, art and visual culture allow us to connect with others, create community, and reflect on our place in the world today.
Art is a technique of communication. The image is the most complete technique of all communication."
— Claes Oldenburg
