Visual Studies

Visual Studies provides students with the analytical skills and theories to become adept at reading visual materials. Visual Studies retains from art history both the skills of visual analysis and its theoretical lenses, but broadens the scope from strictly high art (painting, prints, sculpture and architecture) to encompass a larger array of visual materials (video games, films, advertising, memes, etc).

Beloit College’s new Visual Studies minor, in addition to a core series of classes, will embrace courses from across the curriculum that teach visual analysis, exemplified in the numerous film classes taught in various departments.
