Art History

The art history major at Coe provides students with a broad background, as well as the opportunity for in-depth specialization. Throughout the program of study students will explore the theories and methods of the discipline and come to understand the global impact of the field. The outstanding internship and off-campus opportunities available through Coe are important supplements to the curriculum.

Program Highlights:

  • The major culminates in the writing of a senior thesis based on an independent art historical research project.
  • Coe's art history majors have completed internships at the National Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution, the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art and other galleries, museums and art-related businesses.
