Islamic Art History

Qualifying students can choose to pursue a minor in Islamic Art History as part of their undergraduate studies at VCUarts Qatar.  

In the Islamic Art History minor, students undertake a global survey of Islamic art and architecture, among several other courses, and study the development of visual culture across historical periods and diverse geographies. The minor helps students learn to meaningfully “read” images and develop visual literacy skills, foster intellectual curiosity, broaden cultural horizons, and stimulate a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
