The program Art History at Binghamton University offers students training in the history and theory of art and architecture in its global dimensions and trains its graduates to embark on careers in museums, galleries, libraries, archives, universities and other types of cultural institutions.
Our program is highly interdisciplinary. Students often take courses in multiple related fields to provide a well-rounded and rigorous approach to research. This sort of intersectional scholarship is supported emphatically by department faculty, many of whom are invested in multiple fields and modes of study as well.
