The Art Major and Minor at Davidson

The Art Department is designed around two principal areas: creative practice and critical studies.

You can earn a Bachelor of Arts degree or a minor with an emphasis in either art history or studio art, and the two disciplines are closely entwined. Our goal is to encourage creative approaches to learning in all disciplines as part of the broader liberal arts curriculum.
