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.
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.
