When Wellesley introduced art history in 1885, it distinguished itself as one of the only American colleges to offer this area of study, and the College has been dedicated to leadership in arts education ever since. The Art Department is home to majors in art history, studio art, and architecture, and intersects with programs in cinema and media studies as well as media arts and science. The department believes that the rigorous study of art and visual culture is critical to a liberal arts education and to the power of women to interpret, shape, and master their environments. To enrich the art experience at the College, the department hosts special exhibitions and welcomes guest lecturers and visiting artists to engage with the community.
