Art History

As part of your studies you may work as a docent or get involved with an exhibit at the Wellin Museum of Art, a new and acclaimed facility. You could secure an internship at the nearby Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, home to an important American art collection, or at a museum in New York, Boston or other great art city. You may collaborate with professors on work that leads to publication or to a student-curated exhibition.
