Are you aware of an emergency fund for students in need?

Fall 2010 Art History Courses for Grad and Undergrad!

March 22, 2010

Art History Courses for Fall 2010

This fall we have a new faculty member joining us, Lauren Kilroy (see earlier post), and Malka Simon just joined us this spring.  In addition, Jennifer Ball and Mona Hadler are both offering new courses this fall.  The printed schedule therefore will have some idiosyncracies (some courses listed under special topics, some courses are waiting for the correct number and the like).  This is the definitive schedule for the fall and we hope you find it useful – sign up early for courses or they always risk getting cancelled! Graduate students, please take note that we are offering 2 courses for graduate students only in the fall and it is important that they fill for us to continue to offer grad only courses.
