    Global and Interdisciplinary Connections

    The School of Art and Art History has created an innovative second track to complement the historic Iowa Idea. 

    The Global and Interdisciplinary Connections Track will allow students to count courses from another humanities discipline toward their B.A. degree in Art History, thus enabling majors to learn more about the crosscurrents of art history with languages, cultures, religions, politics, and philosophies.
