Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History
Academy of Art University

Program Details

Academy of Art University, a top online art school, provides an online art degree that merges with an online history degree in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History program.  Art history theory and criticism is paired with the study of the fine and applied arts in this special program, ensuring students have the skills needed for positions in the arts sector and elsewhere.  The curriculum offers a well-rounded education that produces passionate and determined thinkers capable of discussing history’s enduring and inspiring works of art and their place in our own historical narrative.  As a result, students are able to speak, read, and write in a foreign language on a basic level; research and persuasively analyze art historical issues and theoretical positions; interpret Western art and architecture; and work within a specialized discipline of fine art such as painting and printmaking or sculpture using a basic command of color, drawing, and compositional choices.
