The Art History Program is housed within the Department of Art and Art History.

LMU's Art History program exposes students to diverse artistic traditions, providing a full understanding of the historical, religious, theoretical, and cultural context of works of art and visual culture. In addition, LMU's small class sizes and commitment to individual attention help students develop advanced research, writing and critical thinking skills. The Art History Program takes advantage of the vibrant arts community in Los Angeles by introducing its numerous cultural resources in coursework.

Art History majors and minors will be equipped to work in a variety of professions thanks to the philosophical, ethical, social, and historical training they receive.

The training that students receive in art history prepares them for both future study and a multitude of career options. Our graduates have gone on to graduate study at the top programs worldwide, have found employment at major museums and galleries, and have pursued careers in business, law, and entertainment.
