"Not only did the Art History program teach me to read and analyze art, but it also taught me to truly look at art. In fact, I think that was one of the best things I learned from my professors in the Art History program. Another thing that I liked about the program is that while I was taking Art History courses, I was encouraged to take art classes as well. I was not only attaining historical and cultural knowledge on great works of art, but I was also able to understand what it took to create the art because I was actually making art at the same time. As a result, I think this part of my education enabled me to understand both the artworks and the artists on a different level. Working with the professors here has also helped me to develop and refine my critical thinking skills, empowering me to use these skills not only within the art world, but also outside of its realm."
