These courses in art history are designed to give students an opportunity for specialized study in specific areas of the history of art. Such courses may deal with a significant artist and his/her times, with a significant movement, or with significant developments in the history of art. Material covered may not be the same each time the course is offered. Instructors are assigned on the basis of their specialized knowledge, and enrollment is limited since the courses are conducted as seminars. These courses are repeatable, but with permission of the instructor to prevent duplication of coverage. Prerequisite: Upper division standing and permission of the instructor.
