FIT offers a two-year Bachelor of Science program in Art History and Museum Professions that draws on the strengths of our faculty across the campus. We also offer the popular liberal arts minor in the History of Art and provide several courses that satisfy interdisciplinary Liberal Arts Minors, such as Fashion Studies.

In addition, the History of Art department teaches students in every program and major at FIT. We provide unique educational opportunities to students at FIT and welcome every student into our courses to discover new ways of viewing and interpreting the world.

Many professional opportunities are open to those who study art history as a minor or who simply take several of our courses. The visual literacy and the critical and analytical skills you acquire are essential for arts marketing and publicity; advertising; art journalism, art law, and art education; fine art digital and online archiving; the science of art conservation; art librarianship; and work in costume and set design for theater, film and television.

Whatever career you choose—business, technology, teaching, design, public service—your knowledge of art history will inspire, enlighten, and empower you.
