The art history department at UCLA offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Ph.D. degrees, with courses surveying Western and non-Western art from earliest human history to the present. Students learn to treat artistic works and trends from a critical and historical point of view, analytically rather than subjectively. This dynamic curriculum prepares students for careers in which a broad knowledge of art is important and provides students interested in graduate study with a foundation for research requiring independent critical judgment. The rich and varied art resources available at UCLA and throughout Southern California offer students extraordinary opportunities to supplement the formal curriculum.
