General Information

Degrees and Areas of Concentration

The department offers course work leading toward the Bachelor of Arts in Art History and the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art.

Courses included in the B.A. in art history cover the arts of Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America, including Native American arts, from ancient times to the present. Courses examine the entire range of human visual expression from painting, sculpture, architecture, and photography to performance and festival arts. In each case the arts are examined within their historical, aesthetic, and cultural contexts.

The B.A. in Art History has the following learning outcomes:

  • to write clearly and coherently about works of art and art historical literature;
  • to possess the ability to conduct independent research on works of art and visual culture;
  • to recognize and be able to apply different methodologies, recognizing that each incorporates a specific valuing system;
  • to demonstrate understanding of the ethical issues surrounding cultural property;
  • to analyze critically and interpret works of visual art and art historical texts;
  • to demonstrate familiarity with and basic knowledge of diverse historical artworks.

The B.F.A. in studio art consists of a foundation art program and an emphasis area in the following: art education, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, and general fine arts. UMSL has a transfer agreement with the St. Louis Community College District, which offers a direct credit transfer to upper division BFA courses for students who graduate with an AFA degree from the SLCC.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art, with emphasis in Art Education, Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and General Fine Arts, has the following learning outcomes:

  • to develop visual and verbal responses to visual phenomena, and organize perceptions and conceptualizations both rationally and intuitively;
  • to become familiar with the major achievements in the history of art and design, including the works and intentions of leading artists and designers in the past and present;
  • to develop the capacity to identify and/or solve problems within a variety of physical, technological, social, and cultural contexts;
  • to understand and evaluate contemporary thinking about art or design;
  • to become familiar with and develop competence in a number of art or design techniques;
  • to make valid assessments of quality and effectiveness in design projects and works of art, especially their own.

To support its teaching and research objectives, the department maintains a slide collection of over 110,000 slides and an expanding database of digital images. The collection, which includes examples of painting, sculpture, architecture, photography and decorative arts, is under the supervision of a professional visual resource curator, who is available for special assistance to staff and students.

Gallery 210

Gallery 210, located in Building 7, 44 East Drive, offers visual arts programming of regional, national, and international importance. The gallery's exhibitions and related arts programming have enjoyed a long and distinguished history of service to the university and to the St. Louis community. Gallery activities are supervised by a professional gallery director.

Gallery FAB

Located in the Fine Arts Building, Gallery FAB exhibits a range of work by artists of regional and national significance. The exhibitions are coordinated by members of the Studio Art Faculty and complement the teaching emphases of the Fine Arts program.

Gallery Visio

Gallery Visio is located in room 170 Millennium Student Center. It showcases work by students and faculty, and hosts exhibitions that address cultural and contemporary issues.

Scholarships/Internships

Several scholarships are available on a competitive basis within the department, including the Art Department/Barbara St Cyr Scholarship, the William T. Isbell Jr. Scholarship, the Aronson Scholarship, the Marie Larkin Scholarship in Art Education, and the Hilda and Roy Bergmann Scholarship for Art. The department also sponsors a variety of internships with local arts institutions, including the Saint Louis Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, and Laumeier Sculpture Park.

Career Outlook

Study in art history broadens and enriches a general education, offering insight into the visual, architectural, and cultural artifacts left by earlier, as well as modern, civilizations. Art history graduates have found career opportunities in teaching, museums, galleries, libraries, historical societies, sales and auction houses, historic preservation, and arts administration.

Students with degrees in studio art find careers in teaching, advertising, public relations, graphic design, illustration, film and video production, arts administration, art restoration, product and industrial design, framing, and commercial photography.

With over 300 art teachers in the greater St. Louis region alone, there is a demand for art teachers statewide each year.

Faculty Overview

The Department of Art and Art History has a diverse faculty actively engaged in the production of art, its historical and critical evaluation, and the training of art educators. The department prides itself on its commitments to high standards of teaching and sound research achievements. Individual faculty have been cited for their teaching excellence. Art history faculty members have written books, articles, and critical reviews, and regularly participate in national and international conferences. Studio art faculty exhibit nationally and internationally in group and solo juried and invited exhibitions.
