Why Study Art and Art History at Baylor

In an increasingly visual world, the demand for the skills of artists, designers, and art historians is growing. Whether creating with paint, pencil or charcoal on canvas or paper; with tactile materials such as clay, fibers, metal or wood; with light on photographic paper; or with pixels on a computer screen - artists and designers play a key role in communicating ideas, information and aesthetics.

The Department of Art and Art History promotes the study of Art History through lectures, seminars, museum visits, and guest speakers. The program seeks to encourage critical thinking, close looking, and analytical writing through the study of art and culture.

Baylor's Department of Art and Art History is unique as it offers students a wide array of classes within a broad range of artistic areas and disciplines while challenging them to think creatively and critically: preparing them to enter the professional visual world or advanced study.
