Welcome to the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Tufts University!

Our department offers courses on cultures from across the globe, including Impressionism, Latin American and US Latinx, Islamic, African, Buddhist, American, Medieval, Renaissance, Armenian, Contemporary, and Byzantine art, as well as courses on the history of architecture, film, and photography. Our approach is fundamentally interdisciplinary, and many of our courses are cross-listed with other departments and programs including International Relations, Religion, Classics, Film and Media Studies, American Studies, Latino Studies, Anthropology, Africana Studies, and Middle Eastern Studies.

Tufts is an ideal place to study the history of art and architecture, not only because of small class sizes and the quality of the faculty, but also because of the vibrant local academic culture, and particularly the many nearby art institutions, including the University Art Gallery, the Harvard Art Museums (Tufts students enjoy free admission), the Isabella Stewart Gardner, the Institute of Contemporary Art, and Boston's renowned Museum of Fine Arts (where Tufts students enjoy free admission).
