The Art History Program at Irvine Valley College provides a variety of relevant and challenging courses that meet the needs of all students. All courses are designed to incorporate the necessary components required in the academic development of a comprehensive art historical and methodological understanding. Art historical topics address the Western canon from antiquity to the post-modern world, as well as the art of Africa, Oceania, Asia, and the Americas. Most of the courses offered in the art history curriculum meet general education requirements in fine arts. They may also be taken to satisfy the requirements for the Associate in Arts degree in Art History (AA) and the Associate in Arts degree in Art History for Transfer (AA-T).
