The opportunity to do a major with honors is available. The major encourages study abroad through many programs. Students take advantage of local Boston museums for assignments and internships. Upon graduation, History of Art & Architecture majors work in museums, galleries, auction houses, architectural firms, municipal and state cultural programs, educational institutions, preservation, and publishing.
