Art history is one of the broadest fields in the humanities, concerned not only with the nature of works of art — their form, style, and content — but also with the social, political, and cultural circumstances that shape them. This minor encourages a
lifelong understanding and appreciation of art and design, with opportunities to cultivate more advanced and specialized knowledge.
The Art and Design History minor is offered through
Parsons' School of Art and Design History and Theory and requires successful completion of 18 credits across five subject areas,
as outlined in the chart below.
Note: Course availability may vary from semester to semester. Some courses may be in development and offered at a later time. Students seeking to pursue alternative coursework to fulfill the minor should consult with their advisors.
A student who has completed this minor should be able to demonstrate:
* ADHT faculty advisor permission required.
