Art history faculty members maintain an active research agenda and enrich their classrooms with expertise and familiarity with the latest scholarship. The faculty has garnered numerous awards from prestigious institutions like Harvard, Princeton, and Yale universities; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; and more.
Small class sizes of 15 to 35 students allow for close interaction between faculty and students. The breadth of courses offered, ranging from prehistory to the present and covering many areas of the world, is rarely found at other SUNY institutions.
The Art History Department maintains close ties to the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art on campus, allowing our students access to original works of art. Students interested in pursuing museum careers may enroll in a specialized museum studies course offered every year by the department.
