Welcome to the Department of Art & Art History

— filed under:


The Hunter Department of Art & Art History is a union of three distinct areas—Art History, Studio Art and the Galleries. Students can practice many media, can study art history and theory, and can help curate shows and write catalog essays, gaining practical experience as well as knowledge. This holistic approach, seeing the department as a manifold of activities and study opportunities students can selectively engage and take advantage of, is a distinctive aspect of studying in the Department of Art & Art History at Hunter College.

The urban environment is inherently conducive to fostering the department's triadic, holistic aspect of study: the global art world—an integration of production, curating, and historical analysis—is at our doorstep and is part of daily life at Hunter. The faculty actively uses our art-rich environment to meet our learning goals and to shape our courses to incorporate an engagement with our environment.
