The Art and Art History Department was featured in the PC Magazine showing our Enhanced facilities anchored in PC’s new visual arts district. "A liberal arts education embraces all forms of art, recognizing each for its unique role in the development of students. This package focuses on distinct slices of visual art: a new campus arts district; a biology course in which research is enriched by state-of-the-art microscopes, cameras, and software; and a creative hub for theatrical productions, the Costume Shop."
Art Department Collaborates with Departments of Science
The Art and Art History department is actively involved in Providence College's event titled Surprising Realities. The year long event is sponsored by the School of Arts & Sciences and involves the Departments of Art and Art History, Biology, Chemistry and Women's Studies. Its goal is to combine the art of science through a series of art exhibits, lectures, and films. The Art Department's exhibits are focused around a number of different scientific themes.

The Art Department in conjunction with the History Department at Providence College is offering an amazing opportunity to study in Greece. The three credit course, The Rise of Greek Civilization will be a survey of Greek history taught through the unique combination of archaeology, architecture, history and religion. Art History professor and archaeology specialist, Dr. Thomas Strasser will take students to specific, historical archaeological sites in order to learn about Greek culture. Dr. Fred Drogula, professor of Ancient History will also be lecturing students at these various sites to further understand Greece's rich history. The course is offered as a Maymester Program and will begin with a week of rigorous classes on campus at Providence College from May 19th through the 23rd. The course will then be followed by a twelve day trip to Greece where students will be able to work and study on site with the professors.
Please contact either Dr. Thomas Strasser of the Art History Department or Dr. Fred Drogula of the History Department for more information.
