Art History

The Art History program at Marshall University serves students by providing a strong foundation in the history and theory of art. With a focus on the Western tradition, the program offers a two-semester History of Art and an array of specialized courses.  Students with majors as diverse as anthropology and English routinely take art history courses for enrichment, and any student may minor in art history by taking the two-semester survey plus four additional courses.
