Art history is the study of art throughout the ages. The purpose of this type of history is to not only understand and appreciate certain pieces of art, but also the artists that created them. An art historian studies the different types and styles of art and artists throughout history and is often in a position to help others understand art better as well. Some art historians also try to preserve and restore pieces of art that have been damaged. Performing these duties often requires artistic abilities since they will need to recreate these pieces. Generally, a degree in art history will often help you secure employment in museums or art galleries. These types of organizations will often hire art history majors to obtain pieces of art and arrange exhibits. Some other possible careers for art history majors include university professors, archivists, museum registrars, museum technicians, preservationists, and art restorers.
