Overview

The Department of Art and Art History features two distinct programs, one in art history, the other in studio art. The art history program explores art and architecture in their historical contexts, while the studio art program teaches the technical and conceptual components of artistic creation.

The minor in Architectural Studies provides an introduction to the study of architectural and allied fields.  Through courses in several disciplines, minors become acquainted with aspects of architecture, including design, history, and urbanism.  Students who plan to pursue graduate study in architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, historic preservation, architectural history or a related field are strongly encouraged to consult with faculty in the Department of Art and Art History early in their time at Trinity to organize a course of study beyond the minor that will prepare them for graduate work.
