They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. But you know what’s worth a million words? Seeing that famous piece of art you studied from a textbook in real life!

Art majors study the underlying relationship that exists between different cultures and how it influences local art. Part historian and part cultural critic, art students help define art by placing it in its proper historical context. By examining the layers that social, geographic, and political forces have influenced on a piece of art, the values and institutions of that culture are revealed, allowing you to know your host country and its people more intimately.
