On May 27, 2022, the Department of Art History welcomed its latest addition of young art historians: 12 new holders of bachelor of arts in art history, who joined the other two graduates who completed their degrees in winter 2022. Our small, loving and student-focused department has a long-standing record of graduating students with outstanding accomplishments. Past records include students admitted to master's and doctoral programs in major universities both within the United States and abroad, students who entered museums and public institutions, and students who were offered positions and internships in renowned art institutes, galleries and international auction houses. Our new ARTH graduates continue this excellent tradition. Congratulations to the class of 2022!
