Material & Visual Culture

Material and visual culture are important sources in history, art history, classics, media studies and other disciplines. The courses currently taught from this perspective have been grouped together in order to create a multidisciplinary minor, which would be an appropriate course of study for students who want to pursue careers in art history, archaeology, museology or public history.

 

Courses:

A minor in Material & Visual Culture requires 24h of courses. No more than 12h can be in a single discipline. Some upper‐level courses have pre‐requisites. All courses offered towards this minor must be completed with a grade of C‐ or better.

Please view the Registrar's Office website for course availability.
