Art History / Studio Art
About the Art History / Studio Art Program
Duration of studies: 4 years (8 semesters)
The Studio Art / Art History major provides students with the opportunity to develop their artistic and creative abilities while gaining a global perspective on the arts.
A critical approach to art in its social, historical, and cultural context complements students’ own creative work and process. Students learn to describe, analyze, and interpret the form and content of works of art, while examining the significant movements of Western art as well as the secular and sacred art of Asia, Africa, and the Americas. At the same time, students acquire an array of techniques for their own artistic self-expression, ranging from two and three-dimensional design, to computer graphics and web design, photography, painting, and sculpture. Classes are small and involve close work with our professors, and students benefit from a wealth of opportunities to view historic and contemporary art in a Budapest, a major European art center.
