Studies in this department focus on painting, sculpture, architecture, and the graphic and decorative arts, and emphasize the history of these arts as visual records of the evolution of civilization. Each artistic form is studied as a creative process which, like language, has developed as an expression of human ideas, feelings, and conditions of life. Such a visual record provides a valuable introduction to various civilizations and to their distinguishing characteristics. Advanced work in history of art prepares students for careers in teaching or for careers in various aspects of museum work.

Organized visits to museums in Cleveland, Detroit, Dearborn, and Toledo as well as to private collections in the area are an integral part of the department's academic program.
