Art - BA in Art History

Fine Arts Gallery

Art/Art History

For over 75 years, the School of Art at Bowling Green State University has nurtured choice, allowing students to express their creative voice in an environment where art is innovative, vibrant, and full of possibilities.

Our 5 divisions include Art Education, Art History, Digital Arts, Graphic Design and Studio.

At the School of Art, students pursuing our BA or BFA degree experience the exclusivity of a private art academy - our faculty to student ratio is 14:1 - yet enjoy the affordability of a state university. And, because we are one of the largest state art schools in Ohio, we are able to offer diverse study abroad opportunities, as well as the facilities and faculty to position students for successful internships and careers with organizations such as Disney Animation, Pixar and the Museum of Modern Art.

The Art History Division's relatively intimate size, together with BGSU's commitment to teaching, ensures a close connection between students and faculty, and offers an opportunity for students to profit from close faculty attention. The research specializations of the faculty include the history and theory of: classical art and archaeology, renaissance art and visual culture, contemporary art and photography, and the arts and cultures of Africa. With faculty in both Western and non-Western fields, students are offered a revolving curriculum of advanced courses representing every continent with chronological and thematic breadth, and are encouraged toward interdisciplinary study.
