The program in Art History is designed to train students in the history and development of art worldwide. Art history, as one of the disciplines in the liberal arts, is envisioned as a foundation for graduate study and for careers in a wide variety of professions. Art history majors are prepared for graduate work in art history, arts administration, museum studies, arts librarianship, visual resource and archive curatorship, historic preservation and art conservation. Buffalo State art history majors who continue their studies on the graduate level may find employment in public and private agencies, libraries, galleries, museums, publishing houses, art dealerships, colleges, arts consultancies, commercial arts organizations and in tourism. It is recommended that art history majors achieve fluency in at least one foreign language before graduating. Students enrolled in a studio course are expected to work a minimum of two additional hours each week outside of class for each credit granted for that class.
