Courses in the BA programs
The goals of the majors and honours program in Art History are to give students a thorough knowledge of the history of art, and to engage them critically in the current debates within the discipline and in the humanities in general. Such an education provides students with an awareness and understanding of various cultures as well as an appreciation of cultural difference. It also enables them to think and look critically. Students gain important communication skills, verbal and oral, through exchanging ideas in the classroom and writing research papers.
This training gives students a curiosity for intellectual endeavours, as well as a critical advantage that is necessary for professional life. It also provides them with the communication and research skills that are demanded in a variety of workplaces. Finally, our thorough training in art historical matters enables students to go on to studies at the graduate level, as many of our students do.
|Course Number Changes 2014
Art History and History and Theory of Architecture Students: please note that this year some course numbers have changed.
If you started your program prior to 2014/15, then your program requirements on your audit will continue to reflect the old course numbers, which are no longer available. In order to fulfill specific course requirements not yet complete, take the required course at its new number, and your audit will be adjusted to reflect the new course coding before you graduate.
Please note that, for year-level requirements (courses required at 1000-, 2000-, and 3000-level) the courses will be counted at the year level of their coding in the year that you have taken them. In other words, if you took ARTH 2608 last year, it will count as a 2000-level course, but if you take it as 1201 this year, it will count as a 1000-level course.
