The Department of Art History requires students to meet annually in the fall with one of our Art History faculty advisors to help ensure students understand the requirements for the major and the many resources available to them. Minors are encouraged to meet with an advisor periodically throughout the year as questions arise or guidance and/or support is needed and to learn more about the many resources available to students in the Department of Art History.
