To successfully fulfill major requirements, students must have at least a 2.00 grade point average in all program of study courses. They must also complete:

  • five upper-level courses in Western art history, numbered between 200 and 299, including at least one from each of the following areas: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance/Baroque and Modern,
  • one upper-level course in non-Western art history, numbered between 200 and 299,
  • at least one more course: an additional upper-level art history course numbered between 200 and 299, an art internship, a first year seminar focused on art history, or an approved art history course completed on study away, and
  • one studio art studio course.

Further considerations

Students who plan graduate study in art history should enroll in either German or French (Spanish only if appropriate for intended graduate program). A reading proficiency in at least one foreign language (typically achieved in the second intermediate course here at Furman) is also typically required for graduate study.
