New College of the Humanities

Course Introduction

The study of art history gives you the opportunity to see and interpret moments in history through their architecture and material culture. The parameters of the art history major at NCH have been set as widely as possible, from Europe to China, with a time span that extends from antiquity to the contemporary. The courses include cultural surveys as well as more intense media'specific subjects including architecture, landscape, painting and ceramics. The English minor combines the broad historical coverage of traditional English degrees with distinctive features reflecting the College’s liberal arts tradition and aims to prepare its students to read not only the texts which we call literature, but all other uses of language, with greater acuity, penetration, and pleasure, for the rest of their lives. The disciplinarily and its interdisciplinary of the English programme makes it an ideal choice as your minor.
