Art History

Art History at EOU serves as a complement to studies in Art, History, Media Arts and Theatre, among other majors and minors. Our Art History survey provides students with a solid foundation in the history of western art and architecture from the Paleolithic Era to the present day, as well as a background in non-Western traditions. Students learn not only how to analyze works of art as objects in their own right, but also to understand and interpret them in relation to the historical and cultural circumstances of the civilization and region in which they were made.  The Art History student will gain a broad understanding of cultural history while developing their analysis, writing and research skills with particular emphasis on critical thinking.
