The Department of Art and Art History at Washington and Lee University, located in Wilson Hall, offers courses in studio art and the history of art. Its program of study includes majors in each of these areas, and a recent surge of student interest has propelled the department into a place among the ten most heavily subscribed academic units in the College.
In the Department of Art and Art History, we are committed to the inclusive and productive learning of every student who studies and creates with us. As faculty and staff, we recognize and value the diverse backgrounds of our students and we embrace the differences in our educational community. We are passionate to bring the demands of social and environmental justice to bear in our curriculum and our department as a whole. We are invested in producing learning environments that equitably engage and support a complex diversity of students, and we seek to attract their divergent interests to our department.
