Studying Art History at Regis
Students studying a minor in art history learn an understanding of the way images provide insights and interests into peoples and cultures.
The Minor in Art History Program at Regis offers students an opportunity to develop a knowledge and understanding of visual culture throughout history alongside a major. It introduces students to the intrinsic qualities of artistic images and artifacts and considers the conditions of their production and viewing, their functions and meanings, and the roles they play in recording and shaping people, perceptions, events, and cultures. Regis College takes seriously its role in preparing students to face the contradictory demands of an ever more visually-oriented world. Consequently, it emphasizes an understanding of the ways that images provide insights into the diverse and profound interests of peoples and cultures.
