Orientation & Advising

New students interested in the Art History undergraduate program should attend the Arts Departmental Advising Fair, which is held during Orientation Week (usually the last week of August). Here you can meet the Undergraduate Program Director and representatives of the undergraduate student association (AHCSSA), learn about the various requirements of the Department’s Art History programs, and receive information about participating in arts-related groups, initiatives, and internships on campus. The event provides incoming students with an opportunity to ask questions and to receive advice on how to plan their courses.
