Courses in art history examine art and visual culture in their contexts: probing the intertwining of form, content and meaning; and investigating the theoretical lenses that have been enlisted to discern the import of art, architecture and material culture. Museum and Curatorial Practice This program prepares students to think critically and pro-actively about the ways that art is positioned-in the museum and in the larger arena of public space - shaping viewers' perceptions of the past and sense of the future. Mindful of the politics of representation and display, students will examine the shifting ground that reaches from the early museums of the mid-18th century to the urban interventions and cyber-exhibitions of the 21st century. This concentration prepares students to pursue graduate work and careers in museums, galleries, artists' spaces, art in public places programs, and emerging on-line venues. Enlisting the robust resources of San Diego, students gather first-hand experience through internships in USD's Hoehn Print Study Collection and University Galleries, together with the city's major museums and public art programs. Recent student internships have included: Hoehn Print Study Collection; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; San Diego Museum of Art; Timken Museum; Museum of Photographic Arts; Lux Art Institute; New Children's Museum; ARTS: A Reason to Survive; Quint Contemporary Art.
