Prepare for a major in Art History by taking recommended courses to fulfill the requirements of a transfer degree.
Art History is the study of visual arts within a cultural and historical context. It looks at art and visual culture as instruments of knowledge and methods of human expression to gain a deeper understanding of the human experience. By studying the styles, techniques, and methodologies of the visual arts created throughout the ages, students learn the importance of human creativity and artistic expression and learn to situate ethnic, aesthetic, social, and cultural traditions within a global perspective.
The Associate of Arts - Direct Transfer Agreement (AA-DTA) is part of Shoreline’s General Transfer program and is designed to meet the first two years of requirements of most four-year degrees.
