Department of Art History
Welcome to Mt. San Antonio College's Department of Art History and Visual Culture,
home of the Art History and Humanities programs, where you can study the history of art and architecture in one of the strongest
Art History programs in the California community college system!
The academic discipline of Art History involves the study of visual objects as works of art and as artifacts of the historical and cultural contexts in which they were created. We provide students with a solid foundation in both European and non–European art and visual culture from the periods of pre–history through the present-day and train students to critically analyze visual objects from a variety of perspectives.
In addition to western, global visual culture, ancient and modern art and architectural history, the Art History Department houses the popular HUMA 1 course (The Humanities).
