The Department of Art and Archaeology has long been a leading center for the study of art, architecture, and archaeology. Besides covering all periods of European art and architecture, current faculty members teach in areas as diverse as Chinese bronzes, pre-Columbian objects, Islamic art, Japanese prints, African art, American art, the history of photography, and theory and criticism. The curriculum of an undergraduate major can include courses and independent work in any such area as well as in studio art taught by faculty in the Program in Visual Arts.
