Art History

Art History is the academic study of objects of art considered within their time period. Art historians analyze visual materials such as paintings, sculpture, and architecture, and consider them within their historical context. RCC’s Art History program covers such material as general Western European, Asian, African, Oceanic, and Latin American art history, as well as other specialty classes. The Associate in Arts in Art History for Transfer Degree is designed to facilitate the student's passage from Riverside City College to the California State University system with an emphasis on art history.
