  • One ARTH-UA elective chosen from any non-survey courses or any approved course offered in another department or at an NYU study away site. Any course in the urban design and architecture studies program may be counted as an elective for the art history major. Other proposed substitutions must be discussed with and approved by the director of undergraduate studies prior to election of the course in question.

Major in Classics and Art History

For details of this interdepartmental major, refer to the description under the Department of Classics in this Bulletin. With prior departmental approval, students can count two courses from any single NYU study away site toward this major and may count a total of three courses from more than one site.

Major in Urban Design and Architecture Studies

This major requires nine 4-point courses (36 points). Students work with the program director to achieve career-oriented goals within the major. Course work must include the following:

  • History of Architecture from Antiquity to the Present (ARTH-UA 601)
  • Shaping the Urban Environment (ARTH-UA 661)
  • A combination of core courses and cross-referenced courses, chosen from the following: ARTH-UA 104-105, ARTH-UA 205, ARTH-UA 301-302, ARTH-UA 408-409, ARTH-UA 602, ARTH-UA 650, ARTH-UA 662-663.
  • Seminar requirement: at least one seminar chosen from ARTH-UA 670-679, ARTH-UA 681.

Minor in Art History

Four 4-point ARTH-UA courses (16 points) that do not overlap in content. At least one must focus on non-western art, or on a field other than modern or contemporary.

Minor in Urban Design and Architecture Studies

Any four 4-point courses (16 points) from URDS offerings that do not overlap in content.

Policies Applying to Departmental Majors and Minors

Credit toward the art history and urban design major or minor is granted only for courses completed with a grade of C or higher. Courses graded Pass/Fail do not count.

In the art history major, students may use one course to satisfy both a chronological requirement and a cultural traditions requirement (for example, one course might fulfill the early modern art requirement as well as one of the two required courses in cultural traditions). Students who double-count courses toward major requirements in this fashion will need to take one or more additional electives to reach the major’s statutory minimum of nine 4-point courses. 

The following courses satisfy either the early modern or modern art and architecture requirement in the art history major, not both: ARTH-UA 5, 316, 317, 511, 520, 531, 541.

In addition, the following courses may be used to satisfy only one of the ancient, early modern, or modern art and architecture requirements in the art history major: ARTH-UA 506, 507, 512.

Students cannot receive credit for both History of Western Art I (ARTH-UA 1) and Ancient Art (ARTH-UA 3) or Medieval Art (ARTH-UA 4); or for both History of Western Art II (ARTH-UA 2) and Renaissance and Baroque Art (ARTH-UA 5) or Modern Art (ARTH-UA 6), as their contents overlap.

Art history courses taken in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development may not be double-counted for credit toward an art history minor. However, for Steinhardt students taking a minor in art history, the two-semester Steinhardt survey Art and Contemporary Culture is the prerequisite for advanced Renaissance, baroque, and modern courses. Art and Contemporary Culture II may only serve as the prerequisite for advanced modern courses.

Advanced Standing Credit

A score of 5 on the Advanced Placement Art History examination, or a score of A on the Advanced Level History of Art examination, exempts students from Foundations of Art History (ARTH-UA 10) and counts as one course toward the major (i.e., the major can be completed with eight courses). Note that the Advanced Level exam awards 8 points; 4 are equivalent to ARTH-UA 10, and the other 4 are ARTH-UA elective points that count toward the baccalaureate degree but not the major.

Lower scores on AP and A Levels do not count toward the major or exempt students from ARTH-UA 10, although scores of 4 and B respectively do count as elective credit toward the baccalaureate degree. 

Advanced standing credits cannot count toward the minor.

Courses in the College Core Curriculum

Students majoring or minoring in art history or urban design and architecture studies are exempt from the College Core Curriculum's Expressive Culture requirement. Students who wish to have a Core Expressive Culture course (CORE-UA 720, CORE-UA 721, or CORE-UA 722) count for credit toward either major must secure the permission of the director of undergraduate studies for art history or the director of the urban design and architecture studies program.

Graduation with Departmental Honors

Students may graduate with departmental honors in art history or in urban design and architecture studies by successfully researching and writing a senior thesis. This represents the culmination of the work for the major and provides excellent preparation for graduate school. To be eligible for the honors program, students must have a GPA of 3.65 or higher at the conclusion of the junior year, both overall and in art history or in urban design and architecture studies. A student wishing to write an honors thesis must apply for admission to the program via the department’s site in early March of the junior year. For a complete description of all the honors thesis requirements, please visit our departmental site for honors-track students.

Work toward the senior thesis consists of two 4-point honors courses (ARTH-UA 801 and ARTH-UA 804) focusing on research methods and writing, accompanied by regular meetings with the supervising professor. The completed thesis, at least 30 to 40 pages in length, is read by a committee of three faculty members, including the supervising professor. The committee meets with the student for a thesis defense at the end of the academic year. Satisfactory completion of the thesis, in the committee's judgment, earns an honors degree. These two honors courses may replace the two electives required for the major.

Internship Policy

Under exceptional circumstances, the Department of Art History awards academic credit (2 points) for an internship accompanied by an independent study. Students must find a professor willing to supervise this study. Course work may include a written diary recording the student's work experience and will include a term paper relevant to the internship, to be approved by the supervising professor. The independent study must also be approved by the director of undergraduate studies.

Art History

Window on a war.

Drawn from NYU’s archives, Fighting Fascism exhibits rare posters and propaganda used to rally support for the Spanish Civil War

The Kimmel Windows Gallery is showcasing rare archival material from NYU to explore the history of the Spanish Civil War as well as the stories of some of the 2,800 US volunteers—including 22 NYU students—who served with the Spanish Republic. Fighting Fascism: Visual Culture of the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) examines the use of posters, postcards, advertisements, and other visual materials to influence public opinion and rally support for the war, which preceded World War II.

Co-curated by Miriam M. Basilio (GSAS ’91, IFA ’95, ’02), an associate professor of art history and museum studies who received her PhD in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, the exhibition pulls from the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives, part of NYU’s renowned collection of the radical political left within the Special Collections’ Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives. Created in 1975 by veterans of the brigade, the Abraham Lincoln Brigade Archives preserve the stories of the US volunteers who served as soldiers and humanitarian aid workers in a brigade named in honor of the president who led the American Civil War. 

Spain became a Republic in 1931, and in 1936, the Popular Front coalition was elected on promises of agrarian reform, improved education, women’s suffrage, and the separation of church and state. Landowners, the Catholic church, aristocrats, and monarchists supported the military insurrection to overthrow the democratically elected government. While the majority of Americans remained isolationist, several thousand volunteers traveled to Spain to support its democracy.

“No Pasaran!” (They Shall Not Pass) by Sim (José Luis Rey Vila), from the 1936 book “Estampas de la Revolución Española” (Images of the Spanish Revolution), published by Barcelona’s Oficina de Propaganda.

“Victoria: Hoy Más Que Nunca” (Victory: Now More Than Ever) by Josep Renau. This 1938 postcard was also issued as a poster by the Subsecretaría de Propaganda.

Government officials, political groups, trade unions, and humanitarian organizations recognized the power of images to strengthen morale, educate, and solicit international support during the conflict, explains Basilio, who scoured the archives with her co-curators for the exhibition. Visual materials tied to American volunteers highlight their personal stories while also examining the power of propaganda and the importance of visual literacy, both of which are relevant today.

“The materials are emotional—meant to convince citizens, many of whom were illiterate, of their cause,” Basilio says. “The images were designed in a dramatically appealing or frightening way.”

On view through September 15, the exhibition includes personal materials, such as drawings, postcards and photographs, that detail the experiences of those on the front lines. It also explores civilian life, the effects of the war on children, and the role of women in the fight. “There are so many inspiring  stories—and heartbreaking stories—in the archives,” says Basilio.

The exhibition grew from a 2019 course that Basilio taught with Assistant University Archivist Danielle Nista, who is one of the exhibition’s curators. That course drew from Basilio’s 2014 book, Visual Propaganda, Exhibitions, and the Spanish Civil War  (Routledge), and the students also served as curators of the show, which was delayed because of the pandemic. Basilio says the visual materials, although more than 90 years old, resonated with students, who found parallels to today’s political and media landscape: “The class was in 2019 and we were looking at the election, thinking about social media and memes, and the fact that President Trump had gained fame in a reality TV show. It was the mass media that made him recognizable.”

Art History (Minor)

Program description, minor declaration.

Once described by  New York Times  art critic John Russell as the best undergraduate department of art history in the country, the art history program at NYU was established to provide a rigorous and wide-ranging education in the many facets of the history and theory of art, a mission that its faculty continues to enthusiastically embrace. Students become familiar with global art from antiquity to the present. The department offers courses in ancient, medieval, Renaissance, baroque, modern, contemporary, East Asian, South Asian, Islamic, Latin American, African, Oceanic, Pre-Columbian, and Native American art, treating not only painting, sculpture, architecture, and photography but also graphic media, manuscript illumination, the decorative arts, and aspects of urban design. The department is one of the few undergraduate programs in the country with extensive offerings in conservation and museology. A myriad of museums, galleries, and local architectural sites make New York City the ideal place in which to study the visual arts on site and in the flesh. Beyond New York, art history courses are offered at NYU's study away sites, such as Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, and Prague.

The department offers majors and minors in art history and in urban design and architecture studies. Since an education in the history of art can be enhanced by a firsthand understanding of its making, our majors are encouraged to minor in studio art through the Steinhardt School. The department publishes its own student journal ( Ink & Image ), and has an honors program which culminates in the writing and oral defense of a senior honors thesis.

Art history graduates have proven exceptionally successful in securing positions in museums, commercial galleries, auction houses, and nonprofit organizations. Those who go on to undertake graduate study typically pursue careers as curators, conservators, and academic art historians at the university and college level. Students majoring in urban design and architecture are well prepared for graduate study in architecture, urban planning, and historic preservation.

To request declaration of a minor, CAS students should visit the host department. To request declaration of a cross-school minor, CAS students should complete the online Minor Application available in their Albert Student Center. Students may also use the  Minor Application  in Albert to request cancellation of a CAS or cross-school minor.

Program Requirements

Art History may be taken as a minor in conjunction with another major.  The minor consists, in principle, of any four courses offered by the department that do not carry significant overlap. However, the usual requirements for prerequisites remain in place. Thus, students wishing to take advanced courses in most areas must first complete ARTH-UA 10 Foundations of Art History . Art History courses taken at Steinhardt may not be counted for credit towards an art history major or minor.

At least one must focus on non-western art, or on a field other than modern or contemporary.

Policies Applying to the Minor

Nyu policies, college of arts and science policies.

Credit toward the art history and urban design major or minor is granted only for courses completed with a grade of C or higher. Courses graded Pass/Fail do not count.

In the art history major, students may use one course to satisfy both a chronological requirement and a cultural traditions requirement (for example, one course might fulfill the early modern art requirement as well as one of the two required courses in cultural traditions). Students who double-count courses toward major requirements in this fashion will need to take one or more additional electives to reach the major’s statutory minimum of nine 4-point courses. 

The following courses satisfy either the early modern or modern art and architecture requirement in the art history major, not both: ARTH-UA 5, 316, 317, 511, 520, 531, 541.

In addition, the following courses may be used to satisfy only one of the ancient, early modern, or modern art and architecture requirements in the art history major: ARTH-UA 506, 507, 512.

Students cannot receive credit for both  History of Western Art I ( ARTH-UA 1 )  and  Ancient Art ( ARTH-UA 3 )  or  Medieval Art ( ARTH-UA 4 ) ; or for both  History of Western Art II ( ARTH-UA 2 )  and Renaissance and Baroque Art ( ARTH-UA 5 ) or  Modern Art ( ARTH-UA 6 ) , as their contents overlap.

Art history courses taken in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development may not be double-counted for credit toward an art history minor. However, for Steinhardt students taking a minor in art history, the two-semester Steinhardt survey Art and Contemporary Culture is the prerequisite for advanced Renaissance, baroque, and modern courses. Art and Contemporary Culture II may only serve as the prerequisite for advanced modern courses.

University-wide policies can be found on the New York University Policy pages .

What was the art world they came into, i.e. before Duke or as they were turning to the arts at Duke? What was the art world for them at Duke? After Duke, what changed in their art world and/or their participation in the arts?

As part of these reflections, we asked the speakers to focus on critical themes related to questions of justice and equity, and to discuss experiences/work/histories related to bias and the arts, environment and resources, art and the Anthropocene, digital accessibility and divides, globalization and de-colonization, patriarchy, and class inequality.
