Art History

These are the course and credit requirements for an Art History Emphasis. View the Art History Emphasis on the UW-Green Bay Catalog.

A series of lecture/discussion courses provides a broad context for examining the artistic production of various peoples. All the classes consider artifacts against their cultural background. Many of the courses also examine the nature of art history itself: how value judgments are made, by whom, and how they change over time. Lower level courses variously survey western (Euro-American) art from prehistory to the present day, with some consideration of non-western societies. Upper level courses offer closer examinations of non-western art, modern cultural production in the popular realm, and contemporary art.
