103 – History of Western Art (3 credit hours)

Introduces the history of the visual arts, focusing on Europe and the U.S. (D)

This course is a survey of the main developments in art and architecture in Europe and America. In the summer, the course is fully online. It is set up so that students can work on it whenever they would like, within the five-week Summer I term.  There are five units that correspond to the five weeks of the summer session, and all work for a unit must be done by Monday of the following week (that is, you can’t leave everything til the end of the term). There will also be Web-Ex meeting times once a week so that students will have a chance to interact with me and each other in real time.  Those meetings will be set up around the enrolled students’ schedules, and there will probably be more than one time available. You do need a reliable internet connection, but you do not need to be on campus to take this course. No special software is needed.

If you have further questions, please email Dr. Barnes (barnes@wfu.edu).
