Visit the Art History Department
From the Guggenheim to Five Points, we are the (art) world. Get inspired.
Old Masters at the Met. Button-pushers at MoMA. Cutting edge experiments at the galleries of SoHo and Chelsea. The arts of Asia and Latin America. Explore it all with the Department of Art History at Fordham.
You stand at the center of the art universe in New York City, home to world-class art collections and the artistic masters of tomorrow.
You’ll study the great accomplishments of European, Latin American, U.S., and Asian art, and beyond and will learn how artists were inspired by and grappled with the historical, political, and intellectual challenges of their day through images and the built environment.
Art is essential to human experience. That’s why art history plays a central role in Fordham’s liberal arts curriculum.
Whether you want to curate the medieval art collection at a museum, sign new artists for a Bushwick gallery, bang the auction gavel, or publish art books, art history at Fordham gives you the tools to sketch out a creative career.
Of course, you’ll learn more than art history here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, languages, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
