Study of the history of art enhances general education by revealing how meaning can be made visual. Students gain the ability to deal with the imagery of their own and other cultures more effectively and critically. Questions concerning historical method, cultural diversity, feminism and critical theory inform the art history curriculum. Pomona College and Scripps College have a joint art history program that treats European, North American, African, African Diaspora, Native American, Islamic and Asian topics through introductory and advanced courses. Students are encouraged to start with the ARHI 001A PO  and ARHI 001B PO  introductory series, but may enroll in the upper-division courses at any time with permission of the instructor.
