The Department of Art History and Archaeology teaches, and interprets through research and publication, the visual and material culture of the classical world, Europe, and the Americas. This mission is supported by nine full-time faculty members, and by a combination of departmentally-managed visual and archival resources rare in American universities.
In addition to providing elements of a liberal education, the program prepares students who wish to specialize in art history or classical archaeology for graduate work.
The department considers the M.A. a broad training program characterized by a diversity of courses.
The Ph.D. qualifies the holder for teaching positions in colleges and universities and for curatorial positions in museums.

Our faculty and staff reflect the widening scope of our discipline with particular strengths in the areas of classical archaeology, the arts of the Americas; the history of architecture; Byzantine and medieval art; gender, sexuality, and the arts; material culture; and the transmission of the classical tradition in later European and American art..
The Museum of Art and Archaeology and the Capitoline Museum in Rome have formed a partnership, "Hidden Treasures of Rome," to advance the study of ancient Roman artifacts. Faculty and graduate students will be studying these objects, the first of which arrived in September 2014.
