Art history examines visual culture from the ancient world to today in a historical and socio-economic context. It draws upon many fields, across many time periods and places. Art historians analyze materials, organize ideas, and write and speak persuasively about representational issues.
Andrea Stylianou, master's student at Rochester Institute of Technology
My professors [at RIT] make reference to a lot of buildings that I already know because of my knowledge in art history, and I am able to incorporate the styles I’ve learned about into my designs. After RIT, I plan to come back to New York City and become a licensed architect, to practice and follow the path Manhattan College inspired me to follow.
