Gateway to Global Art History

ARHI 20560: Gateway to Global Art History

This course surveys the art of the world from prehistory to the present. It centers on a sequence of art objects from the Snite Museum, the Hesburgh Libraries’ Special Collections, and elsewhere on the Notre Dame campus, linking them to well-known art historical monuments from the University’s Global Gateways in Beijing, Chicago, Dublin, Jerusalem, London, and Rome. Students in the course will gain a familiarity with the history of art and develop skills in visual literacy and critical thinking.
