Art History and Visual Culture!


Exciting news!


art history and visual vulture unveils our reimagined program


TCNJ’s Art History program has a new name … The Department of Art and Art History is excited to unveil the reimagined Art History and Visual Culture program!

The field of Art History has moved to embrace a diverse range of methodologies applied to many types of visual and material culture.

Increasingly, the preeminence of a Western art historical canon, or any canon, is being questioned. Issue-based or problem-solving based courses now complement more traditional courses surveying the art of a particular historical period or geographic region.

At TCNJ, our new approach to Art History is inclusive and interdisciplinary, and will continue to grow as we commit to incorporating previously under-represented artists and cultures into our curriculum.
