In addition to meeting visiting artists on campus and bus trips led by faculty to New York City each semester, students may apply for a chance to join the Rothschild-Johnson Weekend, a sponsored opportunity to tour museums, galleries, and private collections with Bucknell alumna each fall.
The Central Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Art History Symposium offers a chance for undergraduates to present their research, hone their speaking skills and share their ideas with an audience of their peers. Talks most often highlight senior thesis research, the results of an in-depth research or independent study project, field work and study abroad, or exceptional internship experiences.
Art history majors are encouraged to pursue study abroad and internships in galleries, museums, and other settings. Students planning to undertake off-campus or non-traditional study are expected to consult closely with their art history adviser and department chair.
