History of the Visual Arts

History of the Visual Arts Overview

Lehigh’s undergraduate minor in the history of the visual arts enables students from non-art majors to form an understanding of the role that art plays in human history and culture. The minor includes required courses on the history of art and architecture, as well as options including 20th-century art, women in art, and an introduction to museum work.
