Three additional advanced level courses:
Students must develop a secondary field in a related area in the humanities outside of art history, in coordination with the
undergraduate advisor. Students must take three courses in their secondary field. These courses may overlap with minors or
secondary majors done in other departments.
Intermediate Language Courses
Students must acquire an intermediate knowledge of French, German, or Italian and must demonstrate proficiency either by
the successful completion of two intermediate level courses, or upon special request, by departmental examination. Any
language requirement waived by exam must be documented on transcript or in our office before checklist will be accepted.
Spanish may also be used to satisfy this requirement but only with departmental permission. The Spanish option is not
recommended for those hoping to pursue graduate study in History of Art.
Other Departmental Requirements:
No departmental requirements may be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory. A minimum grade of C- is necessary in all courses
applied toward the requirements of the major.
Please initial here to indicate you have read and understand these requirements: __________
Honors in Your Major
To graduate with honors in your major, you must complete an HONORS CLEARANCE CHECKLIST and the accompanying
HONORS GPA WORKSHEET by April 1 in the year you expect to graduate in May. Most commonly, this means by April 1 of
your senior year. Failure to submit these forms by this date will mean that you will not receive honors in your major. You cannot
complete the checklist before February 1 of the same year. Please note that these requirements are not related to “General
University Honors.” General University Honors are automatically assigned to all students who graduate with a 3.5 or higher.
To receive Honors in History of Art, you must have met the following criteria:
Have a GPA in your major requirements of a 3.6 or higher. This includes all twelve History of Art courses and both
required language courses for the major. Courses with covered grades may be left out of the GPA calculation.
To notify us that you are eligible for honors, you must:
1. Obtain an honors checklist and honors GPA worksheet by either downloading them from www.advising.jhu.edu or by
picking one up in the Office of Academic Advising.
2. Complete the checklist after February 1 of your senior year and take it to the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
3. Return the signed checklist to the Office of Academic Advising by April 1 . You do not need to make an appointment to
return the checklist, but it must be signed by the correct representative from your department or it will not be
