To study the history of art at Columbia University and Barnard College is to join an enterprise that extends far beyond Morningside Heights. Art history is deeply tied to the cultural life of New York City, where more people are engaged in making, writing about, exhibiting, and collecting art than any place else in the world. Whether it is devoted to Roman sculpture, Japanese ceramics, or French painting, classes in art history at Columbia and Barnard bring students into direct contact with works of art in the city's museums and galleries, while classes in architectural history introduce students to the staggering diversity of its buildings and public monuments.
