Majors in Art History and Archaeology must complete the following coursework with a grade no lower than C-. An overall GPA of 2.0 in the major is required for graduation.
Other Requirements for the Major
In the Department of Art History and Archaeology, 300-level and 400-level courses are differentiated. 300-level courses focus on period or topical surveys and 400-level courses highlight content- or theme-based material. Majors should complete the 200-level surveys before they enroll in 300- or 400-level courses. Students are strongly encouraged to take supporting area courses that complement the art history major. No course with a grade lower than C- may be used to satisfy major or supporting area requirements.
Limit on Special Courses
A. No more than 3 credits total of 269 or 289 (i.e. no more than one 200-level study- abroad course or one 200-level transfer course in a topic that is not fundamentally equivalent to one of our courses).
B. No more than 6 credits of 369 (i.e. no more than two 300-level study abroad courses in topics that are not fundamentally equivalent to our 300-level courses).
