Literary and Art History Certificate


The Literary and Art History Certificate helps students understand the natural connection between the written word and art. So often these activities overlap and, by making a concentration of these subject areas through select courses, the student is offered the opportunity to see how it is that the ideas or creative impulse of the day, and not the medium, that often determines what is made. Students of art history will be fascinated to learn that, while there are romantic painters, there are also romantic writers, and some like William Blake do both. Their ideas come out of the social milieu of the day and it is through the study across disciplines that the student is able to gauge the breadth of these contemporary ideas.
