Welcome to the Department of the History of Art

Located in a region of unsurpassed artistic riches, Johns Hopkins University offers special opportunities for the study of art history. Students work closely with a faculty of research scholars on aspects of European and American art and have access to the remarkable collections in Baltimore and Washington. In small classes and informal excursions, they integrate their direct experience of works of art with knowledge acquired through historical research. Programs leading to the B.A. and Ph.D. degrees emphasize the value of investigating works of art in various historical contexts and enable students to deepen their understanding of cultural history through courses in other departments.
