What will I learn?
Suffolk University is offering Scholarship in art and history.The history of art embodies the human imagination, human history, and the rich tapestry of human cultures in a memorable and accessible form. Art history is an examination of how images and monuments communicate and how they function in society: and to exalt us – and also, occasionally, to mislead us and to sway our opinions against our better judgment. The study of art provides an access to other cultures, other eras, and other ways of thinking, and will prepare you for your junior year abroad and for an entire lifetime of thinking and living with a global and historical perspective.
Art history majors develop a keen aesthetic sense plus excellent research, analytical, and communication skills—launching pads for many careers. Some art history majors go on to graduate school in architecture, museum studies, or law. Others pursue gallery and arts management, teaching, or nonprofit work. The major imparts a crucial combination of aesthetic appreciation and historical knowledge.
Demonstrate awareness of the multiple purposes visual arts have played in different cultures and periods
GENRE: know the traditional aims and conventions of the major types or genres of work produced in the historical and regional contexts covered by the course (e.g. Renaissance status portraits, Gothic cathedrals); and articulate how a given work or monument sustains, transforms, or breaks those conventions in the pursuit of its particular aims
CONTEXT: relate works to the ideas and practices of their original contexts (social, cultural, political, religious, etc.); and account for how a given work sought to affect or influence the ideas and practices of its original context
Analyze works of art seen in person at local museums and galleries using course-acquired knowledge and skills
